Beware Of The Dangers Of Engaging In Gossip

How wonderful it is that the Holy Spirit will convict you of your sin!

If you love the Lord and you want to please Him, He will have to teach you 
Many things as you live and grow in Him daily!

If you have been a Christian and have read your Bible often;
You would of read many scriptures about gossip.
But many times we just skim over a certain passage because it's
Along side words like murder or adultery;
As these sins may not be anything you have done.
But tucked along side these words are the words like gossip or malice and slander.

So I am grateful to be shown the error of my ways;
Maybe it was not done with the intent to cause harm, But
It's still wrong for me to engage in this behavior.

Beware of the danger of Gossip...

We can still get caught in a trap of our thinking or words we speak.

When you think of sin, it's usually something really bad;
So we can be unaware of the sin of Gossip!

Gossip can start out just repeating something you saw or heard,
And can quickly turn into a terrible wave of lies and malice and
Just plain old strong imagination or evil intent.
Or just not being mindful of what is coming out of one's mouth...
So I am grateful that I have recognized this sin creeping into my speaking!
It started out small, (speaking my opinions, or speaking too quickly)
We must strive to not allow gossip to rule our speaking!
Getting caught up in the moment going to cause too many words spoken,
That may not be going through your filter!
The one God gave you!
 So use it and ask Him to convict you of this sin often!

Gossip can ruin a marriage, cause someone to lose their job or ministry!
Destroy a friendship, cause discord in a family.

I can remember years ago a lovely older woman reminding me that
What I had just said to her was probably gossip, because I did not know all the facts!
Second and third hand information is dangerous to repeat!
And my opinion is faulty at best!
Only Gods Word is without fault!

This is why we must repent daily of our sins!
We must be teachable!
We must be able to take correction from the Holy spirit!

~Stop and look both ways before you speak~

Bible Verses about Speaking Gossip and Slander

Everyone has experienced the harm of gossip before. Whether the people talking didn't mean direct harm, the result of gossip is always broken trust and hurt feelings. Gossip can be defined as information about the behavior or personal life of other people, often without the full truth revealed or known. God's Word warns us to stay away from people who gossip and to guard our words when we speak about others!

Scripture also uses the word slander which means making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation. Slander can destroy someone's marriage, job, wealth, and family. The tongue has power and we must be careful with how we use our words. The Bible tells us what words we should speak and which we should not. If you are struggling with gossip or know someone who gossips a lot, study these Bible verses and choose to help put a stop to it.

2 Corinthians 12:20

For I am afraid that when I come I may not find you as I want you to be, and you may not find me as you want me to be. I fear that there may be discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder.

Romans 1:28-32
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.


  1. Oh what a blessing to many your post will be. It sure is to me. I try my best not to gossip. My best friend in Spokane is very good about it. If we're visiting and somehow the conversations starts to step over those bounds, she reminds us both we should probably change the subject. I miss her and her reminders and Godly advice. Don't get me wrong, I do try very hard not to step even near that line, but sometimes you need another person to nudge you don't you?
    Thanks for the gentle reminder today.
    Blessings and hugs,

  2. Agreeing heartily with Betsy's comment Roxy... it's so easy to stray and so hard to stay on the straight and narrow way that leadeth unto life.
    And your post reminded me of James... chp 3:

    ." the tongue is a LITTLE member, but boasteth great things, how great a matter a littl fire kindleth.."

    Thanks sis a timely reminder to walk worthy of the vocation wherewith we are called...
    Loopking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith..
    Thanks for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
    Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X

  3. A wonderful post Roxy. We all need to be reminded of these truths and not excuse it in ourselves. I find the Holy Spirit will prompt me if I'm saying or about to say something I shouldn't. I also try to keep short accounts with God and repent if I need to. Bless you for writing such wise words to us all ~ Linda

  4. Great reminder! Sometime it take someone, to point out our mistakes and help us listen to what God has told us.
    Thank you!

  5. Hi Roxy,
    I’m a long time reader of yours and really enjoy your beautiful posts. I’m always challenged to think on a higher plane. Thank you for continuing to write!
    God bless you!

  6. Gossip is indeed an easy sin to slip into. We must all guard our hearts, our minds, and our tongues.
    With affection,

    P. S. I am thankful for your friendship, Roxy. I will never forget our phone call just before my mastectomy. You helped me to feel able to do the next thing. You're a treasure.
    Sending you big hugs,

  7. Indeed gossip is a dangerous thing and as you shared well warned about in scripture. For me I have also found that the "prayer chains" that some people have created are nothing short of gossip chains and should be avoided. Best to talk to the Lord about what we hear and leave it with Him. He'll let others know if it is necessary.

  8. Hi Roxy! I just listened to Mrs. Sherman’s broadcast and she was wearing a beautiful necklace you made for her and she mentioned that you weren’t feeling well. She asked for prayers that you would feel better soon. I just want you to know that I’m praying for you and that you’ll be in both my thoughts and prayers till your back writing again and feeling better.
    With love,


I really appreciate your comments! May they be kind and helpful to encourage my walk, and bless others as they read them. Thank-you!
