Gossip, it does not seem so bad when it gets going, maybe it’s harmless or just criticize someone’s behavior, that person could say that it did not sound too gossipy, I meant well, I was just telling the truth. says the gossiper. But is it really the truth?
But what are the consequences of gossip?
Proverbs 18: 8
The words of a gossip are like selected morsels;
They go down to the most intimate.
And those chosen morsels hurt people.
Some of the ways in which gossip can not only harm your lack of respect for another person but also their insecurity about themselves.
First, it shows that the cotillero does not know the full story, do you know why that person behaved the way he did?
This shows that the person does not have love for that person, is that what Christ wants us to reflect?
Shows pride, Gossiper is right, they are wrong.
This causes a person to stumble.
Misunderstanding is a great tool of gossip and can cause a person to lose relationships with others because a malicious language runs the truth. Divisions because “You think” you heard someone say or do something. A person would have to leave a ditch due to the misunderstanding that was discussed.
A gossip betrays a trust;
so avoid anyone who talks too much.
Then there is a person you can have trusted, there is nothing worse for a human than having poured out your innermost thoughts and then hearing that through another person. That divides many and leaves no confidence for that person again and could take many relationships before that person can open up to another person.
A gossip betrays a trust,
But a reliable person keeps a secret.
The fact is that gossip destroys relationships and people will avoid gossip. In fact, many times people make friends with a gossip so they can tune in with who this person is talking to now to make sure they are not being gossiped.
Bitterness is at the root of this mouth infested with evil.
What an endless circle that is.
A perverse person raises conflict,
and a gossip separates close friends.
Let’s be honest; Gossip separates not only people from each other, but also the gossip of God. Jesus commanded us to love each other, not to speak ill of others so that we see each other better or we do not see each other. Our actions to Jesus speak more than even the words of gossip. Do not be part of this, if you hear someone talking badly about someone, change the subject! Do not get involved
Without wood a fire is extinguished;
Without a gossip a fight goes off.
If you know that someone is going to gossip and you will be close to him, pray. Ask God for help in that situation. God knows the hearts and minds of all and will always be available in times of stress and need. So trust Him and focus on being the person He has called you to be.
