Yes. I gossip.

“Dear friend, I pray you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 1

I was thrilled to see my girlfriends after months of not getting together. There was so much to talk about… life, love, other people’s drama.

Yes. I gossip.
Yes. I sin.

And for some reason during this particular conversation I didn’t want to say one thing harsh about our “target” of discussion. I actually felt compelled to just pray for her.

If I’m going to use my breath to speak, it should be to uplift, encourage, compliment.

What does conversations look like in your life? What would happen if you didn’t chime in during conversations that slander another? It can be really discouraging to do the right thing when others around you are not. But be encouraged that if others don’t see your faithfulness to God, He does. And thats all that matters.

Wish your nemesis well. Pray for them. Pray for your heart to soften towards them. Forgive them. And let go of the poison locked inside your body.
