Gospel vs. gossip
"Remove wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother's eye."
As I was praying with this Gospel this morning, I realized the similarities in the words "Gospel" and "gossip." Gospel signifies good news; the Good News of Jesus. Gossip is the opposite, really. Gospel is truth, gossip is probably not. Today, let's concentrate on living the Gospel of Jesus and not let ourselves get sucked into the gossip we may hear at work. Jesus gives us the perfect blueprint how to treat others--giving them the benefit of the doubt. That is truth. What you may hear around the water cooler, not so much. Blessings on your Friday and your later summer weekend! Love, heidi
