We live in such a culture of gossip it’s hard to get away from it even if we wanted to. You’d have to live in a cave away from people altogether not to be exposed to it. I have a real bone of contention for what passes as acceptable news media in this day and age. The more someone is “messing up” the more we want to know about it. Many years back Don Henley wrote a pop song called “Dirty Laundry” which nailed commentary then and probably more so now…..
“I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry”
There is such a thing as good gossip!
Mal 3:16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name.
