Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior.” Ephesians 4:31 NLT
The word slander means false accusations, tale bearer of (rumors) and defamation of someone’s integrity. As a child of God Almighty we should be careful not to identify with such group of people or to be part of this kind of speaking. This is the kind of speaking which God says ” He hates” because it brings division instead of unity.
There are two sides of every story but the third side which is The Word of God is always the right side.
There are six things the lord hates— no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.” Proverbs 6:16-19 NLT
Anything that God Almighty hates we must learn to hate it also.
O lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you? Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?” Psalms 139:21 NLT
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your word. Deliver me from the spirit of slander in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
