Church Gossip

Gossiping Women
Irene the church gossip, and self appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business.  Several members did not approve of her extra curricular 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 old blue pickup parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon.  She emphatically told George, and several others, that everyone seeing it there would know exactly what he was doing.

George, a man of few words, stared at her for a few moments and just turned and walked away.  He didn’t explain, defend or deny!  He said nothing!  Later that evening, George quietly parked his  blue pickup in front of Irene’s house …. walked home …. and left it there….all night!Blue Pick-up

The moral of this story is don’t judge others. Even the most obvious situations are not what they appear to be.
