Rebel Part 2 – Gossip

Yesterday we looked at how words are a way of showing that we can Rebel. We can Rebel against what the world does and sound totally different from the world! How is that going for you, do people see a difference in your words?

Today we will focus on words again, but on how we use them. I true Rebel will sit with people and listen to what is being said and not join in on the conversation of gossip. What a massive example it is when people start talking bad about others and you don’t say anything, even if they look to you for fuel to what they are saying. They ask you to give feedback, and you sit in silence but in love. This is a true rebel against gossip. Gossip is easy, it is easy to join in the conversation about others. It is hard to sit in silence!

“A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret” (Proverbs 11:12-13).
