Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip, quarrels cease. (TLV) Proverbs 26:20
Scripture is clearly telling us that gossip will only harvest, strife, and division. Eliminate gossipers from your lives and the result will be less stressful, more peaceful, and become a more positive life experience.
Let no harmful word come out of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for building others up according to the need so that it gives grace to those who hear it. (TLV) Ephesians 4:29
