Read Proverbs 23
Gossip is something that most, if not all, middle school and high school students deal with or start. Whether it is in your family or friend group, gossip is everywhere and it is up to you to decide if you want to partake in it or not.
The bible says that the root of gossip is jealousy, envy, and anger, so when you talk about someone else you are showing the sin in your life. When you gossip you are not only hurting the person that you are talking about, but you are also hurting yourself because you are putting things into your heart that do not need to be there.
Is this something that you tend to struggle with?
Think of a list of ways that you can break this habit.
Ex: reading the Bible daily, surround yourself with people that encourage you, and fill you heart with God’s promises.
