{In response to a friends post about Gossip:}

Thank you, Brother

Yes, it is encouraged that if there is gossip going around that the truth be faced with accountability. Do not face a false truth alone but with guidance from those whose wisdom come from The Lord.

Romans 12:19 –
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

Our words come from our hearts and with Jesus as our witness, those who speak false truth will be rebuked and those accused will be uplifted with righteousness… “…out of the abundance of the heart our mouth speaks.”

The truth will set you free says the word, so if what the spirit allowed to release is also so that the truth be known, then: Deuteronomy 13:14 – “Then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly.” (NIV)

Great encouragement of rebuking this temptation, Dennis Salazar​​.

The Golden Rule: treat others the way you’d want to be treated…

Matthew 7:12 – “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (NIV)

Gossip IS a sin. Nevertheless, Whether you are the sinner or was sinned against, instead of “taking an eye for an eye,” we as Christians shall love one another as Jesus did.

This is not a suggestion, it is a commandment (1 John 4:20). Also, “…love covers a multitude of sins.” -Mathew 19:19.

Without hesitation, also forgive as God forgave us. To not forgive is to hate and to hate leads to judgment. (Proverbs 17:17).

Matthew 18:21-22

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.”

So, brothers and sisters, we only hope and pray for what great things God has in store for all.

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” -James 5:16

Thank u for sharing again and God Bless.
