Can You Keep a Secret?  by Joe Barnett

A true friend will keep a secret. – Proverbs 11:13 

“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”  Don’t count on it.

When confidential information is shared with you, is it safe?

Do you leak it – even with the stipulation, “I’m going to tell you something, but you must promise not to tell a soul”?

The physicians’ Hippocratic Oath includes this line:  “Whatsoever I shall see or hear in the course of my profession…if it be what should not be published abroad, I will never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets.”

That’s worthy of being personalized, framed, and hung on your wall.  As are these words from Proverbs: “A gossip tells everything, but a true friend will keep a secret’ (11:13).  “A gossip can never keep a secret.  Stay away from people who talk too much” (20:19).

What you do and say reveals a lot about you. 

So does what you don’t do and say.
