Don't Be a Gossip

Post by Evangelista_GP on Tue Jul 12, 2016 2:15 pm


Don’t Be a Gossip
‘A talebearer reveals secrets.’

Proverbs 11:13



When you gossip you’re like a loose cannon. Stop and try to imagine that. When a cannon is anchored and aimed in the right direction it can win the battle. But when it’s not it can destroy everything in its path. And that’s what gossip does: ‘A talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter.’ The word ‘talebearer’ comes from the Hebrew word rakal, which means ‘to go about’; it’s likely derived from an old word meaning ‘merchant’. So a talebearer is someone who goes around peddling gossip! The story is told of a mother who was preparing dinner one evening when her little boy came running into the kitchen. ‘What has Mama’s little darling been doing all day?’ she asked. ‘I’ve been playing postman,’ he replied. ‘Postman?’ the mother wondered aloud. ‘How could you do that when you’ve no letters?’ He said, ‘Oh, I had a whole bunch of letters.’ Alarmed, she said, ‘What letters?’ Her son replied, ‘I found them all tied up with ribbon in an old trunk in the attic, and I put one in every letterbox on the street.’ Even when you don’t intend harm, your words can start a chain reaction that devastates people’s lives and drives wedges. That’s why the Bible says, ‘A perverse man sows strife, and a whisperer separates the best of friends’ (Proverbs 16:28 NKJV). Unless you’re sure that what you’re sharing in confidence will remain in confidence and result in good, don’t share it at all. And if you feel like you must talk to somebody, talk to the One who can do something about it - God!

Ezra 6-8, Rom 5

True.. The tongue is a wild fire, destroys ruthlessly anything it sets on.Even among the children of God,the tongue is still one major challenge that most Christians are facing

That is very correct. Many people have used their own tongues to light flames that are consuming them and their families. If only people would harness this power in the tongue into praises..

If only we can learn to bless, to confess positivity, to praise with the tongue.. life would have been a great paradise to live in

My best friend back then in college, left me,because some jealous friends told her I was following her just to show off.,that I never really liked her,and that I was friending her best friend. And this is some baseless gossip,but it tore us apart.I lost a friendship I cherished so much, a friendship that so much inspired and put me on the move.. was painful.

These are the few ways we can practice humility:To speak as little as possible of one's self.To mind one's own business.Not to want to manage other people's affairs.To avoid curiosity.To accept contradictions andcorrection cheerfully.To pass over the mistakes of others.To accept insults and injuries.To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.To be kind and gentle even under provocation.Never to stand on one's dignity.To choose always the hardest.Mother Teresa,The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living
