Cheap Candy

Standard

Just read this proverb out of The Message – a paraphrase of the Bible.

“Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy;
do you really want junk like that in your belly?”
Proverbs 18:8

How true is that?! Cheap candy tastes really good while you’re chewing it…for about 10 seconds…then as it settles in your stomach, you’re like, “ugh…why did i just do that!”

  1. I love The Message. It has such a great way of taking things that are easy to overlook and presenting them in a way that makes me take notice.
    By the way, how did your 4x4x4 challenge turn out?
