Have we heard; "I don't know if I should tell you this"; "I don't want you to take this the wrong way"; or "I'm not one to judge, BUT..."? They call it "concern", GOD calls it GOSSIP, RUMOR, SLANDER, BACKBITING, RAILING and even REVILE. Do we "listen" to such talk that can DESTROY US; DESTROY A CHURCH or a MINISTRY? If we listen to such talk, and do nothing, we are participating as much in the GOSSIP as the one speaking! Lev. 19:16, "You shall not go around as a SLANDERER"; Prov. 11:13, "...a slanderer does not have a trustworthy SPIRIT"; Prov.26:20, "...where there is no whisperer (Gossip), quarreling ceases"; Jer. 6:28, "They are rebellious, going about with slanders..."! So the next time someone says, "I don't want you to take this the wrong way"; YES THEY DO!
Let us Pray for a GREAT REVIVAL! AMEN!
