Hey everyone! In this post, I'm going to talk about gossiping. It's something that a lot of people struggle with including me. Sometimes we just need to keep our mouths shut. If you can't say any nice then you shouldn't say anything at all. But it is easier said then done. I am trying to work on only speaking words that lift people up instead of bringing them down. Your mouth is probably your most dangerous weapon. It can make someone cheerful in seconds or make someone feel worthless in a heartbeat. If you have friends that draw you into gossiping, try to tell them that you are trying to not gossip about anyone and that it would be best to change the subject. Not all gossip is bad. You can make small talk instead. You can talk about things that encourage people instead. Here is an example.

Your Friend- Ugh! That Bertha! She always thinking of herself! Did you hear what she did yesterday? Well it all started when....

You- Um...   Did you hear that Suzy got a new puppy? It is so adorable. I got to see it today. She said if you wanted to, you could go and see it tomorrow.

Your Friend- Oh yeah I heard about that! I would love to come! I bet it is so cute!

Sorry about the cheesy picture and story. I just thought of it on the spot. So if you feel tempted to gossip, lift people up with everything you say.  It won't just make the people that you talk about cheerful, it will make you feel cheerful as well. :)  Here is a bible verse that talks about gossiping.

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.  -Ephesians 4:29


  1. Very true! We are all God's children and need to uplift each other as He uplifts us! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. You're very welcome! I hope you have a great day!
