Gossiping is to speak ill of others. It is a common wrongdoing we make or did make our self guilty of. Gossiping is hurtful because it destroys relationships between people very quickly. The thing with gossip stories is that it will start out small and by the end it has so many tails added on that is become a new story by itself. Then the original story is long forgotten.
Gossiping hurts people’s feelings. Gossiping at best feeds on other people’s mistakes and the things they do wrong according to others. I think as Christians we should rather talk about the good things a person does and give recognition to those worthy of it. I also think if we cannot say something good about people around is, we must learn rather not to say anything at all. Hard as it may be, we have to practise this until it becomes second nature to us.
Let us please God and not ourselves or people around us. To honour God should be our only concern. Here we should look at the example of Christ, He did not entertain gossiping, and we as children of God should also not entertain gossiping.
AVOID GOSSIPING IT IS A CANCER TO THE CHRISTIAN SOUL!
