TRUTH AND ENCOURAGEMENT
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him: a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
Proverbs 6;16, 19
As long as we entertain lying and gossip in our communities, these practices will tear us apart. We are to partner with our brothers and sisters in Christ to help them overcome sin not lie or gossip about it. Such words have no place in the mouths or hearts of believers, for God calls us to be a people who speak truth and encouragement. A flock of geese flying in harmony together paints a wonderful picture of what God expects of us.
If one of those geese is injured, it's mate stays behind to help it or until it passes away. We should learn from them how to be with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Lord God, forgive us for the times we have lied or gossiped about others, and thank You for the opportunities You give us today to speak encouragement to those around us.
God Bless my Spark Friends.
