Those who gossip with you, gossip about you. Gossiping is like swallowing a grenade and waiting for someone else to drop dead. What you don’t see with your eyes, don’t witness with your mouth.
A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man [or woman] who talks too much. A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. Proverbs 20:19, 16:28, Galatians 6:7.
