THE GOSSIPER


A Gossiper. Everybody knows one... or you could be the one that people know. No matter what the case is, the only time a gossiper comes in handy is on the rare occasion when real important information has somehow passed you by and the gossiper pops up out of nowhere to inform you of what you missed. Aside from that a gossiper really has no good use.
Most times they are one extreme or the other, and that is boisterous or sneaky. Either way there is no difference between the two, and both should be avoided like the plaque. In fact many things have been said about gossipers, but the bible says it best.
It is written that: They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips.

Have you ever heard that saying "God Gave You Teeth to Cage That Evil Tongue"  Think about that the next time you are about to slander a person and slice them with the words of your tongue. Pick up a book. Learn something new and wonderful to teach to others instead of speaking about the people who are living their lives according to their hearts desire.
Being a better person starts with speaking better, carefully choosing what to say, and when to say it. By living your life in a manner that is conducive to a healthy lifestyle you will prosper faster, live happier and leave a memory worth talking about.

This December 25th we celebrate what we consider the day of Jesus Christs birthday, approximately 2012 years after his death. His memory is carried throughout history. Not just because of the miracles he performed, but also because of the character he represented. Jesus himself did not uphold gossip and judgments and often said "Pick the speck out of your own eye first before you try to pick it out of somebody else's."
Matthew 7:1-5

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
  
If you have been gossiped about just recognize that the ones who have tried to harm you will not succeed. Do not allow them to affect your inner thoughts, the core of your heart. Their words are not of God and their judgments are not just. Remain a person of righteousness, and know that this too shall pass.
If you are somebody that gossips, then you need to change your ways. You can alter your character and be a better person with little effort. It really does not take much. You can be the type of person who represents kindness and not malice, and instead of knocking people down you can help rise them up, but you must first start by looking in the mirror. Looking at yourself from outside in and inside out and change the way you speak.
Once you begin choosing words of a compassionate nature you will automatically feel the change take place in your heart. The change may not happen over night, and at first every so often you may fall back into step with the gossiping pathway. However, the more you jump back off the path of gossip and back onto the road of righteousness, you will eventually become a person who others will see as a motivator as opposed to a gossiper.
