Let's make it a habit of shutting down conversations that involve hating on people. Only God knows what a person has been through in their life. Instead of judging that person, how about we pray that God will help that person. I pray that God gives us grace to see a hurting soul that is in need of love. God help us to see past what we think we know, and what someone might be saying regardless of if it's the truth or not. We are called to be like Christ, and we need to forgive and show compassion. Let's remember to lend a helping hand to the fallen. We haven't walked a day in their shoes. That person that is being talked about might be at a breaking point in their life, and may be in need of a friend. There is a reason why this person is making the life choices that they are making. Everyone has their own way of survival. God knows the reasons why we made the bad decisions that we made, yet He forgave us and had mercy. He can do the same for others. We all go through seasons where we live, learn, and grow. The truth is there is not a hopeless person, because as long as we have breath there is hope for us all to change and become better.
11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Exodus 23:1 23 “Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness.
13 A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
28 A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
This is unfortunately true. Listen closely to your so called friends and acquaintance's. Hopefully they will have character enough to take up for you in your absence.
Pray for Godly Healthy relations, friends who love you, have your back, and pray for you.
Don't feed into the drama.
Luke 6:31 Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. “For if you love those who love you, what thanks do you receive? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks do you receive?
