If people are talking about you behind your back to your friends, take comfort. If they’re talking about you, that means they’re leaving someone else alone.
God will use it for His glory and the good of His people. It separates the adults from the children, the wheat from the tares, good from evil.
Gossip says more about the void in the life and the heart of the whisperer than it does about the character of their target.
Your FRIENDS won’t tolerate gossip and will shut it down. Jesus followers won’t tolerate gossip, whether it’s about their friends or their enemies.
Friend, if you’re going to listen to gossip, remember: If they’ll whisper to you, they’ll whisper about you.
