Luke 12:3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

So many have been embarrassed or gotten in trouble for what they posted in their e-mail or some social media on the internet. They did not realize that what is in the internet can be seen by people other than the intended. Jesus said what we say or whisper will be proclaimed from the roofs. We think it is safe to gossip about someone in supposed confidence to another. What we say will come back to us. God hears our every word and thought. When we are talking to others we must realize that God is also there. When we are thinking about what we will say or do God hears our thoughts. Paul gave us instructions when he wrote, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (The Holy Bible, New International Version. Pradis: Phillipians 4:8). Bad thoughts will come to us. Critical thoughts about others will come to us. We are not responsible for those brief encounters but are responsible for what we do with them. Our question is will we remember God is always with us and quickly dismiss anything that doesn’t line up with His Word?
