Proverbs 18:8
The words of a talebearer are as wounds.
It is extremely easy to hurt someone by spreading malicious gossip. Don’t be a talebearer. It can’t be emphasized enough -DON’T TELL TALES!!! Even though they may be true. Wow, it’s hard, isn’t it? But think of it this way: Do you like people saying unkind, maybe even untrue things about you to others? NO! Then don’t you do it either.
