The Art of Positive Gossiping

The Art of Positive Gossiping. People are going to talk, right? Most of us have the nasty habit of spreading juicy rumors about people, are perhaps casually talking about other people behind their backs. What if we cultivated the habit of positive gossiping? What if we spoke only good about others? If you really want to make points with your mate, build them up, not only in front of them but also to others. “Do not let any unwholesome word come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (Ephesians 4:29)
