Does the bible teach us things to avoid.
Yes the bible is a good reference on this. 🌸 Sowing the seeds of discord. 🌸
Gossip, slander and malice is a sin that not only is an abomination to the Lord but has dire consequences for those who partake in such things.
It’s says call it out once but if they repeat it… Do not associate with them again.
For least you be tempted. 🌸
This has been long forgotten as a sin but it is one of the most serious sins ~so much so it has many verses dedicated to it..
Speaking with evil in their hearts, whispers to cause division and baring false witness. 🌸
We have to avoid these things if we are to remain spiritually pure.
In a world that is all about gossip, malice and lies it is important to remember not to be dirtied by those who partake in such gossip.
The Lord deals with those in his own time and its for us to keep watch of our own hearts and tongues so we do not also fall prey to such wickedness..
When we monitor our own conduct we can see if we are behaving in a manner that is compatible to being faithful and a follower of christ or if we are becoming an abomination to him.
We reap what we sow so let us never sow the seeds of discord and avoid those who have wicked hearts and partake in this as a constant way of life…
Strive for spiritual purity and guard against evil and it will strengthen you and Jesus in times of turmoil….. and if we do fall victim then ask the Lord for forgiveness so you can learn and continue in a way that is befitting for a king that sows love grace and truth. 🌸 This is the essence of spiritual warriors in the world to be brave 🌸 🌸 🌸
