Gossip and Flattery Defined

Kent Hughes:
Gossip involves saying behind a person’s back what you would never say to his or her face.
Flattery means saying to a person’s face what you would never say behind his or her back.
HT: Justin Taylor

I recall hearing Pastor Hughes give these definitions when I sat under his preaching. And they were so convicting that I've never forgotten them.
