Sometimes the source of the news from “the grapevine” is sour grapes!
Let’s be careful in understanding the difference between passing along information and passing along gossip after it reaches our ears.
Gossip can be such a tempting thing, but if we know it’s gossip, then we should let it die on the vine. Let’s strive today to pass along the Good News instead of the sour stuff.
“He who goes about talking of others makes secrets public, but the true-hearted man keeps things covered.” (Proverbs 11:13 BEV)
