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

Proverbs 11:13

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.

   Test 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 reveals secrets,
But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.

Proverbs 11:13

Are you a person of integrity?

Can you keep secret?
