When young children speak ill of people or dislike someone, could it be that their parents are partly responsible? When young children do not like Church people, could it be that their parents speak ill of Church folks at home? The answer to these questions is most likely ‘yes’. We shape our children’s worldview with our words and actions. When we gossip, we sow seeds of distrust in our innocent children’s heart. They deserve to have a positive worldview and see people through God’s eyes.
Ephesians 4:29 (MSG)
Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.
What are your thoughts on gossip in the home?
