Gossip has wing’
Curse not the King, no not in they thoughts, and curse not the rich in thy bed chamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
There is a story that tell us, that what we say, will never be forgotten. That hidden words of gossip have no ending, because they go into eternity. Did you think that the words you repeat just come out of your mouth, and stop right there? There is no way to stop the words once they have been spoken. As scripture says: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
Thru the years, I have heard people say: I told so and so about what I had heard, and when the words that I had said came back to me, they had been so twisted that I was shocked beyond believe.
Proverbs 26:20 Tells us: Where no wood is,there the fire goeth out : so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
