In this episode of Lifeschool, Caesar will share why gossip is pure poison. You’ll also discover 3 ways to crush gossip before it gets started.

An ancient Proverb in the Hebrew scriptures says, “Whoever goes about slandering or gossiping reveals secrets, but he or she who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.” Proverbs 11:13.
