If you want peace in your home and your relationship then allow others to have peace in their homes and their relationships. Let us mind our own business and stay out of every oneís business.
You would be surprised to know how heavy a burden other peopleís business can be to your life. Think about it. It can be such a burden that you donít have time to take care of your own business. If you are not conscious enough other peopleís problems could begin to take up all the space in your mind, and there is little room to take care of your own life. We have a better word for worrying about others Ė it is gossip.
Sometimes because you are a kind person you donít turn away anyone who comes to visit and then to gossip, or someone who calls you on the phone with gossip.
The best way to handle this is to stand up for what you believe in. Let them know that you have decided that you will mind your own business, and you donít need or want to involve yourself in gossip anymore. Easy as that.
Our minds are created for greater and better things. If some of us bag down our minds in other peopleís affairs we will have no room to think positive in our life.
Some people even lose a friend or all their friends because of gossiping.
A real friend will help you understand where you are coming from and where you want to go in your life. Gossip has destroyed many homes, many marriages, and many good relationships. So many children have gone astray because of a separation with their parents. So many innocent people working on their jobs have gotten set up because of evil gossip. They lose their jobs and have to start all over again.
So gossip is not our friend; it is your worse enemy. This is the reason Jesus hates gossip. It is an extremely destructive force that breathes evil. Humans are not perfect, but we donít have to deal with things that will destroy our relationships in the end. Let your word be your bond.
PS: Be thankful to the people who help us in the time of need, because they are our friends and they care about us. And pray for the ones who only come to help us when they want something, because they are not our friends and they donít care about us.
