Has gossip affected you personally in your life, that you know of?


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!

    Wow, Crafty, bless your heart. You have endured much at the hands of relatives and have shown yourself a bigger person by your response to such nonsense. Thank you for sharing and for leaving the powerful Proverbs at 6:16!!! You have a good heart!

    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!
