Why You Can’t Allow Gossip In Your Marriage

Why You Can’t Allow Gossip In Your Marriage
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Gossip is dangerous! If gossip can tear apart a whole church, then think of what it can do for a marriage.

As couples who are children of God, it is good to make an early decision that gossip will not be allowed in your family, either from friends who have itchy mouths or between yourselves as couples.

Here are few reasons why gossip is dangerous.

1. It is a wound

The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

Pro 18:8 (KJV)

Gossip permanently blemishes our view of the person being discussed. It births wrong thoughts about that person.  Once that picture gets into our minds, it’s very hard to erase it.

2. You will be judged.

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Mat 12:37 (KJV)

Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.”

Mat 12:37 (MSG)

As a result of the above, you really want to be careful about the words you say!

3. It is destructive and can cause its victim to be suicidal

but the tongue is not able to be tamed. It’s a fickle, unrestrained evil that spews out words full of toxic poison!

Jas 3:8 (TPT)

Gossip is a wildfire gone out of control. We try to put it out. We try to control it. But the gossiper keeps pouring gas on the fire. Gossip takes on a life of its own. The story grows and changes. The story even grows within the mind of the gossiper.

4. Gossip is the language of those who have rejected Christ
This can be seen in the fowling scriptures:

And because they thought it was worthless to embrace the true knowledge of God, God gave them over to a worthless mind-set, to break all rules of proper conduct. Their sinful lives became full of every kind of evil, wicked schemes, greed, and cruelty. Their hearts overflowed with jealous cravings, and with conflict and strife, which drove them into hateful arguments and murder. They are deceitful liars full of hostility. THEY ARE GOSSIPS  who love to spread malicious slander. With inflated egos they hurl hateful insults at God, yet they are nothing more than arrogant boasters. They are rebels against their parents and totally immoral.

Rom 1:28-30 (TPT)

God bless you. Have a great day!
