How to destroy a friendship

“The degree of damage or good that a person can do, just by how he speaks to others, is astounding and should never be underestimated. We must avoid all manner of evil speaking, that is, any destructive use of the tongue. . . . God will judge every idle word that comes out of our mouths; therefore be careful. . . . Weigh your words carefully, and say what ought to be said and no more. Loose, undisciplined tongues destroy friendships.” (Steve Wilkins, Face to Face: Meditations on Friendship and Hospitality)
