Ah! I can't get enough of this YouTube channel, SoulPancake! (As you probably have gathered from all of these videos). Here is a video that addresses gossiping. This video is a little bit different than the others. As opposed to the other videos, this video doesn't exactly consult an expert; it interviews random people on the street, who have been victims to gossip. This video caught my attention because I was reading Romans 1, where it says,
"Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil"
One of my biggest goals in this next year, is to not gossip. I wouldn't say that I gossip a lot, but I do get that thrill when I talk about how STUPID someone was being in x class, or how RUDE a stranger was on x day. But there's really no need for it. Of course, I'm not perfect, and a time may come this year where I feel wronged or annoyed and my mouth just might start running, but one of my goals is to not do that
Along with Romans, Proverbs also addresses the subject of gossip. After having read about how gossip is looked down upon, it was very interesting to see this video and see the actual effects of it in random people's lives
