GOSSIP (Deception, Lies, Rumors)

What effect can gossip have?

BIBLE READING: Proverbs 25:18 Telling lies about someone is as harmful as hitting him with an axe, or wounding him with a sword, or shooting him with a sharp arrow.

Gossip is often more harmful and lasting than physical wounds.Lying (“false testimony”) is vicious. Its effects can be as permanent as those of a stab wound. The next time you are tempted to pass on a bit of gossip, imagine yourself stabbing the victim of your remarks with a sword. This image may shock you into silence.
