Reading famous gossip belongs to the group of things that do not suit. We all hear gossip from celebrities at times but it doesn’t edify. It is not good to promote gossip, looking for scandalous news.
The famous are people like you and me. Put yourself in your place: would you like everyone to know and comment on every mistake you make? Gossip destroys lives and promotes hatred.
Here ‘s what God says about gossip.
1 Corinthians 10: 23-24 teaches us that we should seek the good of others. Looking for gossip from the famous is not looking for your good. We all need privacy and mercy. Famous people are no exception.
In addition to hurting the famous, reading gossip fills the thought with bad and useless things. We cannot live in isolation from reality, but our pleasure must be in the good things of this world ( Philippians 4: 8 ). Taking pleasure in gossip is not a Christian attitude.
What should my attitude be towards celebrity gossip?
Gossip about celebrity life is everywhere. When you read or hear famous gossip, remember:
- Not everything is true– a lot of celebrity news is made up or distorted, don’t trust everything; a “spicy” lie sells more – Proverbs 14:15
- Try not to spread it– avoid too much conversation about celebrity gossip, especially if you don’t know if it’s true – Proverbs 16:28
- Famous people are people– many famous people do wrong things and have damning attitudes, but we all sin; remember that every famous person needs God’s grace as much as you do – Romans 3: 23-24
