The telephone is the lifeline of stay-at-home moms. It is the singlemost important tool that we use to fight loneliness, frustration, and depression. It helps us stay connected to the adult world.
The telephone can also be a trap, a gossip trap. I am ashamed to say that I have fallen into this trap on countless occasions. I am now clawing my way out and I don't want to fall back in.
No more gossip. I must stop.
Friends, I am telling you in hopes that you will help keep me accountable.
Psalm 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
I wanted to find a couple of verses about gossip, but my search yielded 49 verses. Wow. It looks like God has a lot to say about gossip.
