Learning what gossip is and how to stop it
Today’s episode of Renew You is all about learning what gossip is, why we are tempted to do it and how to stop it.
Host Quinn Kelly highlights Romans 12:2 thinking by helping readers reflect on this thought:
The WORLD says this: Say what you want if someone has wronged you. They deserve for others to know what they have done.
But God’s WORD says this:
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. - Ephesians 4:29
Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. - Proverbs 26:20
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. - Isaiah 30:18-19
