I've killed people with my tongue. I've used gossip to hurt others. I did it today and I knew I was doing it. Gossip is so tasty when it's pouring out of my mouth. It's strange that I would gossip about others when my family and I have been hurt by gossip. Here is a good reminder below from God's word when I'm getting ready to start spewing gossip from my flapping lips.
Don't bad-mouth each other, friends. It's God's Word, his Message, his Royal Rule, that takes a beating in that kind of talk. You're supposed to be honoring the Message, not writing graffiti all over it. God is in charge of deciding human destiny. Who do you think you are to meddle in the destiny of others?
James 4:12 The Message
