When life handed me a Canadian Husband, Two Energetic Kids and a Dog with ADHD,
I made myself some Organized Chaos!

Honesty, Gossiping, Slander, Lies and Deception

I was thinking about honesty, gossiping, slander, lies, and deception.  Wow that is a lot to think about.  This topic may be touchy topic and a sin we all try to ignore.  But it is something we all know we are doing!  We may not be lying but I know women and I know we gossip.  Wait...men do to!  Sometimes I think they can be as bad as us ladies!  So lets see what the bible has to say about ALL topics!

A good person produces good words from a good heart, 
and an evil person produces evil words from an evil heart. 
And I tell you this, that you must give an account
 on judgment day of every idle word you speak.
The words you say now reflect your fate then; 
either you will be justified by them or you will be condemned. 
Matthew 12:35-37

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 
The Ten Commandments
Exodus 20:16

Those who desire life and desire to see good days, 
let them keep their tongues from evil and their lips from speaking deceit. 
1 Peter 3:10

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.  
Ephesians 4:29

A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates friends.
Proverbs 16:28

Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; 
therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.  
Proverbs 20:19

To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, 
to be gentle and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
Titus 3:2

And as you wish that others 
would do to you, do so to them. 
Luke 6:31

For lack of wood the fire goes out, 
and where there is no whisperer, 
quarreling ceases.  
Proverbs 26:20

The one who conceals hatred has lying lips, 
and whoever utters slander is a fool.  
Proverbs 10:18

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 3:23

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. 
Colossians 3:17

So lets not do fall into these temptations and lets try to hold each other accountable and be woman and men that Christ wants us to strive for!  Speak words of love and truth!
