PS 50 v 20...You sit and speak against your brother, You slander your own mother's son....

We are always talking about how we are to love one another in Christ, yet sometimes, we have trouble loving our own family members. Why is this? We say, Lord, let us be like Jesus to everyone we come in contact with, but yet, then when it comes to our own siblings, sometimes we do not even give them the time of day. I know I have been guilty of this myself. God did not say to just go out and act like Jesus in public, with people you think will matter, No, He said, we are to love everyone. Call your sibling today, and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. You will feel better after you do.

Prov. 10 v 18...Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool....

The word is telling us that if we harbor hatred in our hearts toward anyone, then we can not say we are of Christ, because Christ says to be of Him is to walk in love toward everyone. If you have someone in your life, that has rubbed you the wrong way, forgive them today, and be set free of hatred, so God can work His blessings into your life.

1 John 2 v 11...But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes....

Now this does not mean just your sibling, this means all God's children.

Next time we think of the word slander, let us remember how God used it. He says they are fools who slander. I for one to not want to be a fool about anything when it comes to God's word. AMEN
