I was speaking in front of a group of business professionals recently and I shared with them the importance of watching what we say. I was sharing how, so often, I will be at a networking event and hear people gossip about one another. This is a very bad practice to be involved in. The reason why is that you never know who might be right over your shoulder. That person listening might be the one you are talking about or they might be friends with the person you are talking about. Aside from those reasons, everyone that’s around you while you’re talking bad about someone else, is going to also think less of you. Since we talk about trying to increase “Know, Like & Trust” with others… we should stay away from gossiping or talking ill of other people.
If you’re Bible reading, God fearing individual like myself, you’ll appreciate this. When I was speaking to this group, I mentioned that there was some scripture that I came across recently that fit perfectly. Ecclesiastes 10:20 is the verse that I shared with them. After I shared this verse with them, a very nice lady came up to me and said that it reminded her of this video of the military birds that will be used for surveillance. I thought that it was too cool to not share.
