The Character of Gossip
 
God hates gossip. He wants our speech to be pleasing to Him. He certainly doesn’t consider idle talk or mean-spirited words pleasant as stated in Colossians 3:8But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth..

Sadly, gossip is practiced so freely that even some believers participate and try to justify their chatter. But hearsay has no place in a Christian’s life. Romans 1 contains one of the Bible’s longest lists of sins. The book’s author, the apostle Paul, is reminding believers that God has revealed Himself to all mankind. Those who reject Him and chase after idols are turned over to their evil worship and the immoral practices that go with serving self.

Gossip appears in the middle of the list. God despises it because malicious talk destroys lives whether the stories are true or false. The person who is targeted by the rumor often loses the respect of those who listen to it. Hurt feelings may not be the only negative effect. A job or relationship could be lost as well.

Those spreading tales also face destructive consequences. People who refuse to control the tongue reveal evil motives or, at the very least, lack of discipline. As a result, believers and unbelievers will often avoid such untrustworthy individuals. For a Christian who spreads rumors, there’s potential for even worse damage, in that such actions can harm fellowship with the Lord. Animosity toward another person and intimacy with God can not coexist in the same heart.

Gossip achieves no good in anyone’s life, which is why the Lord warns against it. Instead, our words should build up, comfort, and encourage others.
Yield Not to Temptation
 
Matthew 26:41
"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

Be blessed , Debra
"Life is God's gift to you; what you become is your gift to Him."
Praying His Promises bless your day!
