Proverbs 26:20
Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
Interesting little comparison, isn’t it? How much damage is done by telling tales, by passing on “juicy” bits of gossip. And you know something? Many times what you hear through the grapevine is not true anyway. There are some who love to make trouble. Let’s change the cliché “The buck stops here” to “The gossip stops here.” Never pass on anything about anyone - unless it’s good.
