Ron: You’ve heard of a dog whisperer, right?  Have you heard of a gossip whisperer?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Dog whisperers communicate with dogs. Gossip whisperers with people and according to Proverbs 26, they divide relationships and stir up strife. You see, they whisper something to one person and something else to another. Oh, it’s fun to hear what they have to say, but God calls it an abomination because it hurts people. There are whisperers in church, at your kid’s basketball game, the halls of school or business, in families, and on Twitter.

Don’t be a whisperer and don’t listen to somebody who is. Better yet, tell them to knock it off. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
