I’m about to step on some toes, and I apologize but at least I am not wearing heals. Ladies I tell you. On of the biggest turn off I see in church is the women who gossip. I use to be highly offended by it. “Did you see what sister so and so was wearing?”
NO!!! I didn’t! I was to busy praying. My eyes was closed!! I was worshiping the LORD, and when I wasn’t I was attentively listening to the pastor. I came to hear the WORD and praise the LORD not pass on a malicious words about someone else in the building.
I come to realize people gossip everywhere but I thought the churches were suppose to stand different then the world. But I learned people are people no matter where you go. BUT since church folks are suppose to be different it would be a lot easier to hear gossip and whispers if they said, “hey gather with us and pray! I am worried about their soul. Or lets stand in agreement that God will touch and change them.” or have you approached the one you talk about in a friendly manner and try to correct them? I never hear the sisters gossip about these things.
The tongue is a weapon and if you use it to talk about people. truly we can use the same tongue and say Lord forgive them of their sins, forgive me God. I am nobody to judge and if I stand perfect then God please help them too because God knows where I would be with out God’s healing and if you can change me God, truly there is hope for them.
But it seems many sisters who gossip can’t stand and do that because instead of look with in their own hearts they so busy pointing out faults in everyone else. Just words for spiritual growth. is any one interested in growing or we just going to continue standing around talking about everyone else?
Ephesians 4:29, Gossip is not good for my soul. it is not edifying to me. it doesn’t seem to very edifying for the person we whisper about either. Just words for some of us saints to consider! have a blessed day dear sisters! and if men gossip this message can apply to you also!
There are many who come to church. they are poor, they are broken, they might look one way one day and in the next year you will see complete change. Their clothes will change, their hearts will change. They will have a strong relationship with God. their fruits will blossom while some of the very same ones who sat and pointed and whispered will still be the exact same talking about the next one that comes in.
Joel 2:13, James 1:26, Proverbs 11:9, Proverbs 18:21, Psalm 141:3 God only you can tame the tongue. Give us new wisdom that will be edifying for your Kingdom God and let our lips always bring forth righteous fruit for you God, in Jesus name Amen!
On the day we sit with God and the Lord ask me. How many did you prevent from coming to my Kingdom with your lips, with your deeds, with your actions? I pray my answer be. Lord my tongue I used for your glory and honor how many did I bring to you God? and instead of God answer. God say welcome home My Daughter! for your lips always did speak righteous things!
and I will reply. Thank you God!! it is only by you I overcame. With your wisdom, with your understanding and with your strength to tame my tongue because the Lord does know it is not easy to always speak righteous things in a world full of evil. God if it was not for your Holy Spirit I would be lost and that is truth beloveds!
I pray many of us who sit in church perhaps do some bible studies on being good stewards! Just my advice! Spiritual growth for the House of God! Written in love Shalom!
