Fasting From Negative People
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from people who are …Gossipers and Slanderers
My grandmother used to say, “a dog that carries a bone will surely bring one back.” This was her way of telling me to be cautions around people who gossip and spread rumors about other people. Gossip is hurtful in two ways. It hurts the person being gossiped about because it assassinates their character, stirs up strife, causes confusion and misunderstandings and spreads private information that may or may not be true. Gossip also hurts the one who is doing the gossiping because when you gossip you hurt your own integrity and credibility.
Today, take a step back and assess your relationships with people who gossip and slander others, so that you can evaluate whether or not you should come out from among them. *****And if you are in a position where you are not yet able to come out from among them physically, then come out from among them spiritually and psychologically by creating some emotional distance and making sure you put on the whole armor of God before dealing with them.
If you are find that you have a tendency to gossip and slander others, ask God to search your heart and renew a right spirit in you.
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: … “Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops.” (Proverbs 26: 20)
PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
