Gossip dont bother me none...Daddy used to say..."empty wagons make a lot of noise"...and when you aint got nothing upstairs or anything intelligent to say...normally they look for someone who is intelligent to talk about...So I get the whole gossip mentality... I just hate when people lie on me.
A busybody is just someone looking to make trouble by exerting false control over the lives of others. Busybodies are tattletales. Scripture says that busybodies are idle people who are neglecting their work and go around looking for negative things in the people around them, often to share with others as gossip or to share with an authority figure to make themselves look better (2 Thess. 3:11-12; 1 Tim. 5:13).
Walk away and watch out: a person who gossips to you has more than likely already, (or will soon be) tearing you down as well!!! I want nothing to do with the ones who aim to tear others down or the ones ignorant enough to listen.
