BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER –GOSSIPERS

GOSSIP –SPEAKING GOSSIP OR LISTENING TO GOSSIP WHICH IS WORSE?

Job 15:1   The Message
[ Eliphaz Attacks Again ] [ You Trivialize Religion ] Eliphaz of Teman spoke a second time: “If you were truly wise, would you sound so much like a windbag, belching hot air?

Would you talk nonsense in the middle of a serious argument, babbling baloney? Look at you! You trivialize religion, turn spiritual conversation into empty gossip.

Proverbs 4:23 Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip. Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions. Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you. Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust.

Proverbs 16:27
Mean people spread mean gossip; their words smart and burn.
Prov 17:4 (the Message)4 Evil people relish malicious conversation;
   the ears of liars itch for dirty gossip.

Some people pride themselves on not speaking any gossip…but their friends are gossipers and they listen, listen….listen to gossip.

Is speaking gossip and listening to gossip just as evil?
