Today I'd like to discuss a topic that is a two-edged sword: Word of Mouth.
In the world of sales and marketing, Word of Mouth is one of the BEST forms of advertising. On the other hand, it can also be detrimental if what is said is negative.
But that is not what I'm talking about today.
I'm talking about GOSSIP.
I've been in various jobs in different levels of employment and I must tell you, no matter what level of integrity the organization, gossip is prevalent.
And even though I despise gossip, I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in someone's bitching and complaining or talking about this one or the other.
I'm not the only one who would rather NOT hear people talk about one another. God is very adamant on the subject. Just check out these Scriptures....
And last but not least, one of the things mentioned as an "abomination" to the Lord is "he who sows discord among his brothers" (Prov. 16:18-20)
There is an old adage.... If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone adhered to that advice?
