The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I do not know about you but I hate gossipers and the arrogant.
If you get a recorder and tape their conversations you will find they cannot say a sentence without lying.
Gossipers only gossip to put themselves at the center of attention at the expense of others. When you call them out, they lie to cover up lies and deny the truth. They break up friendships and cause fights. Indeed, many of them gossip to cause these and then step back and laugh when it happens.
They hate me because I bring up Bible verses that condemn them and tell them they will be held accountable for their perverted pleasure. I try to be discreet, patient and respectful with them but when that does not work I am right in their face, not in anger but rather being firm with them. We avoid each other like the plague.
Teach the wicked the truth. If they reject it then reject them in your life. Otherwise they will bring you nothing but pain and sorrow. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) bless me to always speak the truth with wisdom, gracefulness and meekness. Please bless me to confront the wicked with their lies to help them repent. If they are too arrogant to repent bless me to ostracize myself from them for my own good. I humbly request this in the name of He who always spoke the truth, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the ability to lead the wicked away from their destructive lifestyle and towards Christ.
