Too Much Talk?

What do you like to talk about?  Ideas?  Events?  People?

Well, if it's people, we need to be especially careful.  Gossip is an evil monster.  It can't live by itself.  It needs people...people to talk...people to listen.

  • "Sharing information" about others can be gossip.  

  • Telling someone of another's circumstances (sometimes followed with "Bless her heart...") can be gossip.  

  • Even telling of another's misfortune, followed by "We really need to pray for her/him/them" can be gossip.   

Proverbs 10:19

New Living Translation (NLT)

19 Too much talk leads to sin.
Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.

Just found this interesting and reminded me to think before I talk..."and nobody'll get hurt."
