Guardian or gossiper?
We all have parts of our life which we need to keep to ourself.
We call these our secrets that we don’t want shared with just anybody.
Every person needs someone can be trusted and with whom we feel safe.
These persons exude confidence, someone in whom we believe.
Please chose these trusted people wisely.
Let’s also be a person of trust, bringing immense value into our relationships.
One the one hand, one person guards secrets; on the other hand, another person blurts out secrets.
The first is a guardian of secrets while the other is a gossiper of secrets.
Gossip makes some people feel better about themselves, but the damage it does to trust, reputations, and friendships is never worth it.
Sometimes gossip is motivated by jealousy or a desire to get revenge.
A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence. Proverbs 11: 13 nlt
