Why Do We Gossip

Gossip Will it ever End?

Leviticus 19:16 "Do not go about spreading slander among your people. Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor's life." I am the Lord.

Do you or someone you know Gossip?  Have you ever had someone come up to you not with Good News but to tell you something bad about someone else?

What do you do when this happens? Do you tell them you are not interested or are you like most of the world and your ears perk up at the thought of some juicy Gossip. After all who would not like to know who is sleeping with whom especially when it comes down to a religious leader or a famous person.

Are you guilty yourself of spreading Gossip? Have you been the recipient of Gossip? How did it make you feel to be talked about? Satan will try and make you feel bad about yourself. Don't listen to him or the Gossip?

My mother use to say "God" does not like ugly. He's also not too fond of cute. Read Leviticus 19:16 again and don't believe everything you hear. Find out the truth for yourself. I can recall some time ago a student spreading rumors about a teacher. Everybody believed the student. Being a small town the teacher was not into the word and committed suicide. The truth finally came out but it was too late.

Dear Saints of "God" I ask that you study the word and learn at least a few scriptures so when these people come at you with this nonsense that you know how to handle it. After all didn't Our Lord use Scripture when tempted by the devil?

Your Sister in Christ,
