At Issue - Gossip

Proverbs 11:13

You know you shouldn’t say anything, but this info is big. It’s juicy. And it sits on the tip of your tongue, ready to be shared. Would it hurt to tell just one person? What if you cloak it as a prayer request? Chances are if you share this news about someone else, it will keep getting passed on until you’ve really harmed that person’s reputation. But gossiping also hurts you. It hurts your character, your integrity, your reputation and your relationship with God, whose Spirit’s prompting you ignored. Which would you like to be known as—a gossip or a trustworthy woman?
