The Way to Prevent Gossip

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Deuteronomy 17-19 today.
How many things are reported on the news; how many things are reported to you; how many things have you reported, that are based solely on one person’s say so? That is not a safe way to operate. God told Israel, “One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established” (Deuteronomy 19:15). Try this, the next time something is reported to you, whether it is reported publicly or privately, find out how many witnesses there are, and if there is only one, do not repeat the news to anyone else, and do not accept it yourself.
