If someone comes to mind, pray for them. Don't waste time thinking negatively about them. Don't gossip about them. Pray for them.
If you are talking with a mutual friend or relative, if someone comes up in conversation and the conversation becomes gossip, stop and pray together for that person. OR, just stop talking about them. Ask forgiveness from that other person and move on. Gossip doesn't help anyone. It divides. It discourages. It is puts our eyes on each other rather than God. It is evil
Gossip is evil.
When we participate in it we are participating in evil. We are definitely not doing God's work.
"through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' But if you bite and devour one another, take care lest you be consumed by one another." Galatians 5:13c-15
