Proverbs 18:8

By Charles Kimball

Who am I? I have no respect for justice. I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives. I am cruel and malicious and gather strength with age. The more I am quoted, the more I am believed. I flourish at every level of society. My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name and no face. To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become. I'm nobody's friend. Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same. I topple governments and ruin marriages. I destroy careers and cause heartache and sleepless nights. I wreck churches and separate Christians. I spawn suspicion and generate grief, make innocent people cry on their pillows. Even my name hisses. I am gossip.

to read the entire sermon go to

This has been an issue that I have tried to make clear in my relationships and have had accountability for, for many many years. Satan gets more and more sneaky to let it creep into your life without you realizing it....So again, Im back at studying this and what the bible says about Gossip. Im so not where the bible says I should be. I wish that we women would clearly understand this......We dont.....LOL.......I say women cux we primarly are the ones who do it.......Signed, me, someone who has been affected by gossip and who has participated in gossip even without realizing it.......Lord help me to walk away from gossip situations and to recognize when it is there.......
