"Gossips betray a confidence, but the trustworthy keep a secret." Proverbs 11:13
When I read this verse, I thought back to high school, and how so many people were hurt by the words that were said behind their backs. If we only applied some of the things in the Bible, many people would not be hurt, and there would be more trust in the world. Gossips can not only ruin a friendship, but a reputation as well. Saying something behind someones back may cause them to withdraw emotionally from everyone.
In another note, I may have gotten a job dog walking. The one that I talked about yesterday wants to have a meeting with me, and says that my availabilities work for them.
