Words of a gossip
Go down with ease
Taste sweet to the hearer delighted to partake
Two or three gathered together
Words said in a whisper
Lest anyone else should overhear
Calculated and designed to raise themselves up
Beware to the one who listens
Soon you will be the topic of conversation
Your name will be bandied about in a whisper
Instead step away
Shut your mouth
Lock your ears
Know there is One who overhears it all
He knows the thoughts and intentions
Of our sinful, wicked hearts

Oh how I hate gossip and know its destructive force. If find it amazing that people are so easily lured in to the conversation of a gossip. Do they really think that the person with whom they are conversing won’t do the same thing to them at an opportune time? If someone was gossiping about a loved one…how would they feel? Angry, upset over the injustice and judgmental attitude from the ignorant, wicked heart? There is nothing good about gossip!
12 Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34: 12-14
