There are a lot of ways to dishonor someone, but I am guilty of participating in one of the greatest. The problem is that it’s too easy to do, even when I try to avoid it.
A gossip causes division. Proverbs 16:28
I’m guilty of sitting down with my popcorn and listening to the gossip. If I’m in a disagreement with someone, it feels good to gossip or hear gossip about someone. It doesn’t make me very honorable. And what’s worse, someone who gossips to you is probably going to gossip about you. Not the company I want to be around.
“Jesus was willing to believe in people, confront them, and give them a second chance.” – Perry Noble
I want to be the person who confronts disagreements. One who doesn’t procrastinate, but communicates and is compassionate.
