So why shouldn’t we…gossip?



“For I am afraid that when I come I won’t like what I find, and you won’t like my response. I am afraid that I will find quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, slander, gossip, arrogance, and disorderly behavior.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“The words of the mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a rushing stream.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:6-8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
