Whoever gossips to you will be a gossip of you. Gossip destroys relationships, organizations, churches and ultimately lives. Be careful whom you confide in. The person who tells you “don’t tell this to a soul” has probably told all the souls you know.
Should you feel the urge to gossip about someone today, stop. Instead, say a prayer for that person so that they can overcome whatever hardship you felt the urge to spread.
One who slanders reveals secrets, but a trustworthy person keeps a confidence.
