Gossip is something people do very well. As one walks past others on the street, it is easy to overhear them yapping about the business of others. But why tell a third person about the situation of someone else? If you have something to say to another person, you should go to that person and talk about it. Who knows, you just might win him over and not have to blab his situation to others.
But if you have tried and got no where with the person in question, then you might need to talk to a third party, so that he and you can approach the person with good intentions in mind (Matthew 18:15-17). But some are just like the Athenians of old, they live to hear and speak something new (Acts 17:21).
Let us not be tale bearers (Leviticus 19:16; Proverbs 11:13; 18:8; 26:20, 22; 2 Thessalonians 3:11; 1 Peter 4:15; 1 Timothy 5:13). Do your own work and mind your own business and leave the affairs of others alone (1 Thess. 4:11-12).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
