Daily Scripture

You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people.
Leviticus 19:16

Gossip is the subject of this scripture quote from Leviticus. 19:16 tells us “You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people.” Too often we share stories and information about someone to someone else. You might say it defines the level of intimacy we have with each other. This scripture from Leviticus is very clear about righteous behavior when it comes to gossip. Unfortunately, we’re not always able to resist the temptation, and that’s where self-control comes in. Think carefully before “bearing a tale” and hold it for just a little longer. It’s likely you’ll find when the moment has passed, there is no need to gossip after all.
