The Principles of Gossip |
The biggest liar in the world is They Say.
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
Proverbs 11:13 (NIV)
The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them.
There is just two important things to remember about gossip for it to be
caring and not harmful to the gossiper or gossipee. First,
we need to be willing to repeat whatever we are saying directly
to the person and do it. And, second, there has to be absolutely no
judmentalism in it. If
we are not clear on these two points, then we'd better
keep our mouths shut.
Anne Wilson Schaef, Meditations for People Who (May) Worry Too Much
Gossip needs no carriage.

other thing, the gossip, that counts. It shows where people's hearts lie.
People who judge harshly, criticize and condemn others through
gossip, rumor or bad word of mouth are setting themselves up for
the same unfair trials.
