I am reminded of the scripture at Proverbs 17:9, "He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends." Has this been known to be true in your life, where due to gossip, close friends have been separated? Thank you for answering.

I also have been spoken about negatively, particularly, by family who do not understand my love of the Lord. But that's just persecution, and I don't take that personally. Loveofnight, I'm so sorry about what your brother had to endure!
Very profound answer here dear hfortinberry! Thank you so much for such wise insight to gossip. Yes, we all must take a good look into ourselves to end such harm to others. I appreciate you for sharing your brilliant mind here. God bless you.
Hi Marlene, oh my goodness! How sad and, yes, what kind of thinking indeed? So those two will probably go on to get rid of more in this manner? Boy, that is a harsh reality right there and sad as to one's ethics and character ...
Dear teaches, wow, you have stated a great truth here of exactly what gossip is indeed! The tongue is small but can bring much harm to another or can uplift another, it is our choice. It does take a long time to recover. Blessings!

Dear Dan Katuapai, I am so sorry about your experience with gossip! Bless you for being the man you are and truth won out in the end. I am afraid you are right about it will always exist. You are setting a high standard and people do notice!
Faith Reaper, thanks for your comments. Appreciated. Change starts with the man/woman in the mirror. People will not notice if we as individuals do nothing.
