DID YOU KNOW
sowing seeds of discord is an abomination in the Lord’s eyes? “A worthless person, a wicked man, Walks with a perverse mouth; He winks with his eyes, He shuffles his feet, He points with his fingers; Perversity is in his heart, He devises evil continually, He sows discord.”
Proverbs 6:12-14 Please continue to read the next portion of this Scripture.
What exactly is “sowing discord among the brethren”? I’m glad you asked. It’s to sow seeds (words) that spread dissent amongst the church. It’s to speak a crafty word that undermines a pastor’s authority, “I don’t think that pastor should do it that way!” It’s words that one speaks to solely produce a sense of distrust in the Church Body like, “that church is too *this or doesn’t preach *that”. These words erode at the foundation of people’s trust and their sole purpose is to destroy.
There’s a reason the Bible speaks of the power of the tongue and it’s warnings so much. Words can build up and they can destroy, especially when your heart is bitter. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Jesus tells us that we will give an account of every foolish and idle word. Continue to speak wicked and deceitful words and swift destruction is coming.
Be very careful that when “stating your opinion” it’s not producing seeds of doubt in another’s ears. Just because you may not like the way something is done, does not make it wrong. Be very careful friend guard your heart and your mouth. Some people have a snaked tongue, “eat and drink they say to you, but seven abominations are in their heart”. #runyourrace
