Proverbs 20: 19
| "He that goeth
about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him
that flattereth with his lips." This is another of the proverbs that
we would know was true by our own experience even if it never was found in
God's inspired book.
You just have to be on guard regarding some people. They talk too much about things of which they have little or limited knowledge but love to bring you in on it as if they are telling you something important and confidential. They blab information best left untold. Usually what they say is harmful.
The danger to you about such a person is that they will talk to others about you just like they are talking to you about others. The best thing to do regarding such people is to put distance between you and not allow yourself to be swayed or influenced by the talebearer who always likes to leave the impression he is "in the know." Why is not that good advice?
