10/29/19: Philemon 1:1-25; Psalm 101:1-8; Proverbs 26:20
Unfortunately how many times have you witnessed a very minor disagreement or misunderstanding spread into a full-blown destruction of a relationship? And quite often the growth of the disagreement may not initially even involve the participants — another person or persons may be the catalyst. Relationships among believers are precious and the destruction of one harms the entire Body.
This is one of the reasons I think scripture is so clear in the delivering the inspired message to avoid gossip and those who gossip.
Proverbs 26:20 20 Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
