Food For Thought:
 Lev 19:16 
You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people
Rev. Bryant Evans wrote, “Do church members gossip? Do they gossip about each other? I think we
know the answer. And I think we know that all of us have been guilty of gossip at some time. But we alsoknow that gossip is a horrendous habit that can assault, crush and destroy even the strongest believer.Gossip is particularly damaging in the local church because people are often more open with fellowChristians about their weaknesses and needs. And because those weaknesses are out in the open it may be that
gossip is more common in the church than anywhere else. A frightening thought wouldn’t you say?
Just think for a moment. How many people have been the target of gossip from within the church?How many have been hurt, even mortally wounded by the careless comments of another? Too many I amsure.Here are five ideas to help put the brakes on waging tongues. Start with
yourself first.1. Make a conscious effort to monitor your own words.
Actively listen to yourself. Makecareful note of what you talk about, who you talk about and precisely what you say. Ensurethat your words are Godly words that directly build-up, not tear down.
2. Make a conscious effort to monitor your own hearing.
Whatever comes into your mind
makes an impression. Don’t listen to the juicy details about someone you know. Either move
the conversation to a new subject or move along yourself.
3. Speak out to stop gossip.
There is no need to be nasty but just let people know you will not bea party to gossip. It might be easier to tell your close friends
gossip begins that you are
trying to break a bad habit. When the talk starts, interrupt and remind people that you’d rather 
not talk about other people.
4. Assume unflattering stories are false.
When you hear something tawdry about someone doyou assume it is true? What if we all just assumed that the gossip was false? Would that slowthings down?
5. Let gossip end with you.
What if every piece of gossip depended upon you? Would it live or die? Slay gossip by refusing to repeat it. Keep count for the next week. How many pieces of gossip did you kill? You might be surprised.Gossip is incredibly common
incredibly destructive. There is no place for gossip anywhere butespecially in the church where there are brothers and sisters and servants of the Most High. Do your part to
squelch wagging tongues!”
Yours in Christ,
