Deuteronomy 29:29

“The LORD our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.”

Pssst! God’s got a secret! And when you know it, you will be accountable to live it out. Wanna know the secret now?

Growing up, I could always tell when someone had a secret. It was usually made very obvious. Hands covering mouths and voices in a hushed tone. Not so secretive, ironically. And when the secret was about you, all eyes would gaze at you with a less-than-complimentary stare. No, we don’t like to be the object of secrets.

But there is something about that hidden knowledge that is delicious to our flesh—especially if the spotlight is not on us. Bad news, though—gossip and secrets can do some damage. “A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul. A gossip’s words are like choice morsels, and they sink into the inmost being” (Proverbs 18:7-8).

Those people talking about you? They will reap what they sow and their secrets are not worth repeating.
