Without sharing names and using specific details, please share a time when gossip reared its ugly head in your life, and what was the outcome (whether you were the one who gossiped, or the gossip was about you). When I was in elementary school, some girls started gossip about my family. It really hurt me, I cried every morning when I had to go to school. At recess, I would stay in class and help my teacher clean the erasers, the chalk boards, anything not to have to go outside on the playground. I would cry myself to sleep at night. For a girl with no self confidence, this destroyed me even more. I have never forgotten the intense pain I felt daily. Gossip is wrong, it hurts. It is a fiery arrow straight to the heart. Sweet sisters, we are to build one another up, not tear each other down. If you cannot say something nice about someone, then please do not say anything. If you are with some friends, and they start talking against another friend, please do not join in. Instead, bow your head, and say a prayer for the one they are tearing down. Bless you all.
