Gossip thinly disguised as a prayer request
Only serves to tear down and cause division
No one is exempt
From being the next victim
Leaders faithfully serving the body of Christ
Have decisions questioned at every turn
Those enduring trials and tribulation
Are a delicious topic of conversation for the gossiping tongue
Opinion and speculation
Pass for an intimate knowledge of the facts
Even the innocent bystander
May fall prey to the gossiping tongue
Gossips raise themselves up
By trampling on the reputation of another
The sin of gossip tears people down
Both the victim and the one with the uncontrolled tongue
Sometimes motivated by boredom
Gossip makes the perpetrator feel important
It gives the appearance of being “in the know”
Or the confidant of so many friends
Never is an opportunity lost to sully a reputation
Or call into question someone’s motives
Like an viper lying in wait
At an opportune moment…the gossip will strike with their venomous poison
