- I wonder what percentage of my words each day either function as gossip or flow from a gossip’s heart?
- What if I valued others’ reputations more than my own?
- What if I silently asked for a pure heart before speaking negatively about someone?
- How much would I edit my words if I determined only to communicate facts about people and to avoid speculation, assumption, and motive-judging?
- What would happen if I called for a timeout each time a conversation veered toward unproven speculation or unnecessary negativity about someone?
- How awkward would my conversations become if I determined not to hear gossip and slander?
- How might I speak about others if I were presented with a book containing every negative word that has been spoken about me in the past year?
- How might I change my speech if I were to see an artistic rendering of the damage my words have done over the years?
- What percentage of church splits have been influenced by gossip and slander?
- What if I objected as passionately and immediately to the slander of others as I do to others’ slander of me?
- What if I only spoke of others as I would like them to speak of me?
