First Things First – Proverbs 26

Read Proverbs 26

“The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.”

Its so easy for us to fall into a pattern of gossip. When people talk about things going on with others you know. Its easy to start getting involved in the conversation and say things we probably shouldn’t.

In high school I was always involved in the gossip. I felt like if I wasn’t I would be missing out on something going on and no one wants to ever feel left out. The further I got though, I realized that this is not good for anything. When I first read Proverbs 26 I felt very convicted about my gossip. It was at that point I made a conscious effort to not gossip.

Of course none of us are perfect and are going to be a able to completely keep from gossiping at al, but you have to try.

How have you been with gossiping?

Who do you need to apologize to about your gossip?
