Fasting From Negative Choices
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from the choice to… Gossip
Today I wanted to jump into your inbox to talk to you about fasting from gossip. Gossip is one of those things that not only hurts the victim of it but it also negatively impacts the person who is doing the gossiping. Because when a person chooses to gossip, it speaks volumes about their credibility and character.
— casual or unrestrained chatter or reports about other people, often involving details that are not confirmed as true or that are designed to assassinate someone’s character. Idle conversation and the spreading of rumors.
Colossians 4: 6 tells us this …“Let your conversation always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
When our conversations are seasoned with salt, they preserve trust, peace, respect and integrity. Salt is a preservative. Gossip, on the other hand has no salt or grace in it. Why? Because gossip is a toxin because it poisons, spoils and pollutes peace, character, reputation and trust.
Today, choose to abstain from gossip. Take the high road and choose not to repeat gossip, listen to it, or add your two cents in to set the record straight. Even if you know the intimate details about some else’s private business, choose not to recklessly repeat their private business to others.
Even if you have a falling out with someone and you are no longer on speaking terms, still choose not to gossip about them. Instead choose to let your conversations be full of grace and seasoned with salt. Choose not to be a gossiper. Use your words to build others up and not break others down. Be better than gossip. Let gossip have no place in your life as a Believer.
Today is a new day!!!
It’s new because the sun has risen this morning.
It’s new because you have arisen to meet it.
And the risen version of you has the power and capacity to rise to the occasion and handle your business for today.
Remind Yourself: …”Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.” (Proverbs 10: 18)
PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
