Ecclesiastes 10:20 "No, don't even make fun of the king, even in your bedroom. For a little bird might deliver your message and tell them what you said"
Have you ever heard someone say, "loose lips sink ships". Did you know that this phrase was coined as a slogan during World War II, as an attempt to limit the possibility of people inadvertently giving useful information to enemy spies. This was one of several similar slogans as part of the campaign's basic message - "careless talk costs lives".
So what does this mean to you and me? It means that unguarded talk may give useful information to the enemy! In other words, victory in our public life really begins with what we say in our private conversations at work, at home, and with our friends and family.
We need to make sure that what we pray lines up with what we say. We can't pray in agreement with God's Word in one area, and then try to be politically correct and speak contrary to the Word as we go about our day, it won't work. Our words need to work for us and not against us or what we're praying for.
