It is written; A GOSSIP BETRAYS A CONFIDENCE;
SO AVOID A MAN WHO TALKS TOO MUCH.
( PROVERBS 20:19 *NIV )
Unfortunately, almost every Church has a gossip one must

“JUDGE NOT, AND YOU SHALL NOT BE JUDGED. CONDEMN
NOT, AND YOU SHALL NOT BE CONDEMNED. FORGIVE
AND YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN.” ( LUKE 6:37 )
Therefore today’s message is about the way a new Church

man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just walked
away. He didn’t explain, defend or deny–he said nothing.
However, how fitting it was that later that evening, George
quietly parked his pickup in front of Sarah’s house and left it
there all night…….
