Episode 66 I got Antoinette Allen of likewiselife.com to talk about gossip. I love how the conversation covered every aspect of it from what breeds gossip to the the culture we live in that has a facination with slander and gossip. Talking about people is as natural as breathing, but it’s not the oxygen that produces life but the carbon monoxide that silently kills those who take it in. If you want to talk about someone…I know someone who would love His name in your mouth. Listen. Share. Repeat. God Bless. #realchurchmatters #obedienceoveraudience #badforbusiness.

Keep My Name In Your Mouth
1 Timothy 5:13-14
13 Besides that, they learn to be idlers, going about from house to house, and not only idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying what they should not. 14 So I would have younger widows marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the adversary no occasion for slander.
Idle lives breed drama
Gossip is saying what should not be said
Your idle ways are opportunities for the adversary
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.’
Let the word of Christ dwell in you, don’t be fluent in filthy communication (Ephesians 4:29)
Tame that tongue!
Turn moments of gossip into opportunities of teaching and admonishing in wisdom
It’s easy to keep people names out your mouth when you keep God’s name in it
A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God.
