A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion.

Can You Keep a Secret?
I used to work
for a local ambulance company; the work we do there is honorable, however if
people really knew what went on at that station, it’s like a hornets’ nest of
gossip. New people learn very quickly who they can and can’t talk to; they
learn even quicker who will “rat” them out if they make a mistake or do
something wrong. We even have one person that gets fed misinformation just to
see how quickly he will run to the boss; the boss, himself promotes it and
encourages it. The boss is the biggest rumor monger and will even start rumors
about people when he knows the information he is putting out is a lie.
your integrity or faithfulness. Can you keep a secret? Will you hide it from
those not needing to know? Tattlers or gossips have no integrity – they do not
have a faithful spirit. If they know damaging information about another, they
must tell it, quickly and widely.
What God called talebearing here used
to be called tattling or gossiping; where I am from we call it ratting somebody
out. Today on a grander scale it is called investigative reporting. Now it is known
as entertainment. Locally and nationally newspapers, television, tabloids, and
Internet sites feed on it. People listen or read with excitement; they get
excited with curiosity on hearing or reading it; they beg for more details,
especially sexual ones; they cannot wait to repeat it to others. These people
don’t care if it’s truthful or not, they don’t care if it hurts someone or not.
Where I work, gossip and lies, tattling and rumors have cost people
raises and in one instance their job. We have an individual that goes running
to the boss about every single detail he can find on someone; trying to make
himself look good by making others look bad, how sad.
He who goes about as a talebearer
But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.
you a person of integrity?
you keep secret?
