Do you gossip?

6 Things the Lord hates...Proverbs 6:16-19



There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
17         haughty eyes,
        a lying tongue,
        hands that shed innocent blood,
18         a heart that devises wicked schemes,
        feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19         a false witness who pours out lies
        and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

God hates division that so often comes within the body of the church - you and me..

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133:1

There is beauty in unity!

But why do people gossip? Here are just a few:

  1. Pride and arrogance
  2. To express anger and bitterness
  3. To pull others down to their level
  4. To destroy someone else
  5. They have a careless tongue
  6. To influence other people

I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. Romans 16:17
