Some people say that deaf people all around the world have the same culture. Many people from the deaf culture are good, but some do bad things. I have noticed that gossip happens in deaf culture. Gossip is a sin. We need to stop people from gossiping. Proverbs 20:19 says, “A person who tells gossip about other people can’t be trusted. So don’t be friends with a person who talks too much.”
In our Bible Reading today, Paul wrote to the church in Corinth. In these verses he said that some of the people in that church were not obeying God. In verse 20b, Paul listed some of their sins – arguing, jealousy, anger, selfish fighting, evil talk, gossip, pride and confusion. Gossip is listed as a sin, just like anger or jealousy.
Maybe you have been involved in gossip. Gossip can destroy the church. It can affect your relationship with other Christians. Ask God to help you sign and speak things that will encourage other Christians.
