From today’s Proverbs reading: “The words of a talebearer areas wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.” Prov 18:8
Today people call it “Drama,” but Biblically it is known as backbiting, gossip, talebearing… SIN. No matter how righteous we may feel in our facts and opinions, James 4:11 sums up the matter: “Speak not evil one of another, brethren.”
So much hurt, stress, and contention would cease should tattle tales stop talking and others stop listening.
“Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.” Prov 26:20 (1 Cor 2:2)
