Interested to know where you stand with gossip? Take this gossip quiz!!

"The words of gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to our inmost parts." Proverbs 18:8

Rumor has it you could be a gossip. Gossip is something we’ve all indulged in at one point. It is the oldest and most common form of sharing facts but has the reputation of producing errors – ever heard of the telephone game?

Get in a group of people and have one person whisper something into someone’s ear, have that person then whisper the same thing into the next ear, continue going until the last person has heard the secret and have that person try to tell you what they’ve just heard or think they’ve just heard. In most cases it won’t be anything like what the first person said or intended it to say.

Do you see how gossip can be dangerous? The spread of rumors is often times untruthful and hurtful.



Take the below quiz to find out where you stand on gossip.
