31 Days of Virtue: Day 21

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Titus 2:3

Slanderers. It sounds like such a terrible name to be called, and it is. Clark's Commentary on the Bible says that 'slanderers' is literally 'devils'. Who wants to be associated with Satan? 

"I'm not a slanderer," you say. 

You're not? What about when we gossip? What about when we get together with friends to 'pass on the news of so-and-so'. Are we really just 'passing on the news' in concern for that person, or do we just want to be the first with the juicy details and find out what everyone else knows? Is what we are 'passing on' even true?

There is a quote that says something along these lines, "A person who talks about others behind their backs will talk about you behind yours." Let's not be that person. 

Just a few things to think about as you are out and about today....
