Don't Be Such a Good Listener!

Posted by Matt Postiff October 8, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Bible Texts 
The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body. (Proverbs 18:8 and 26:22 NKJ)

This proverb is a good reminder for one who finds himself on the receiving end of gossip and has a hard time resisting the temptation to continue listening. We know we are supposed to be good listeners. But in the case of gossip, I'm afraid we are too well-practiced at listening. We should shut off the flow of delicious morsels as soon as we see them coming.

Don't be a bad listener! Think about how you will respond the next time someone bears a tale.
