Taking Care of Church Gossip
When in Rome, overcome evil with good, Mildred
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

Mildred, the Church gossip and self-appointed arbiter of the Church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. Several residents were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon. She commented to George and others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.

George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.

Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s House... and left it there all night.
