172 – Gossip

tongueDestructive words never to be returned
Spread without permission
Revealed secrets
Others learned

Exposing private Affairs
Half-truths that spread doubts
Stealing ones good name
A tongue that controls the mouth
Slanderous
Baseless
Assassinates reputations
Murders character
Evokes hatred
Leads to premature judgment
Destroys confidence

No gossip
No quarrels
No jealousy
No hostilities

It’s from a deceitful heart
These thoughts have sprung
But a mouth that utters lies
Can easily be rectified
Once one has learned to control the tongue

***************************************
“Fire goes out for lack of fuel,
And quarrels disappear when gossip stops”
Proverbs 26:20

“In a false quarrel there is no true valor.”
William Shakespeare
