To have a great friend, you have to be a great friend. Becoming a woman who refuses to gossip is a wonderful place to start.
How bad is just a little gossip? Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.
The Bible warns us that gossip will separate close friends, and I believe it. There is nothing worse than to feel betrayed by a friend’s careless words. The Bible also warns us that what we sow, we’ll reap. In other words, if I gossip about others, I can almost bank on the fact that others will soon be talking about me.
Think of what a great gift it would be tell a friend that you’ve made the commitment to never say anything dishonoring about her. You know, I know how great this gift is because I had a friend make this commitment to me. And now my heart feels so safe with her. The trust we have is rare and beautiful.
I firmly believe that to have a great friend, you have to be a great friend. And becoming a woman who refuses to gossip is a wonderful place to start.
