Gossip -- Good or Bad
Eph. 4:31 Titus 3:2
Eph. 4:31 Let all bitterness (upset, angry), and
wrath (much anger), and anger, and clamour (shouting with anger),
and evil speaking (gossip, insulting words, lies), be put away from
you, with all malice (evil desires, mean):
Notice this verse tells us that all kinds of anger
we are not to do. That is what the world does and we are not to
follow (copy) the world.
Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers,
but gentle (kind), shewing (showing) all meekness (humble) unto
We are not to say anything bad about another person.
This includes gossip and telling lies.
We are not to fight with one another. This includes
physical and verbal which means arguing.
We are to be gentle and meek (humble). Gentle is
an outward act. How we act to other people.
Meekness is an inward attitude. Both are things that
as Christians we should be doing.
When we are gossiping, telling lies, getting angry
all the time, not loving others, we are no better than the world,
because that is what the world does.
