Gossip infects everyone. It controls even the least expected. It causes Christians who should love one another to lash out and hurt them instead. What good can come of gossip? Can God's will be done when your focus is on gossip? Traitors! Children of christ humble yourselves! Realize what you are doing. Beg God to open the eyes of your heart and expose that which you do.
(Personal Note: Pray for me -- I am in mourning for my brothers and sisters in Christ and it is a heavy burden to carry.)
