Be Very Careful With My Words - Prov.26.20

Prov.26.20 - Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down. 21 As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife. 22 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts.
I have known and experienced days when I would "kindle strife". I could feel myself stirring it up with others. As I get older, I want to be very careful with my words. I do not want to be a gossip or kindle strife. You? Would you describe yourself as a gossip? Are you letting quarrels die down or do you keep stirring them up?
