Our lives have plenty of challenges and God promises to bring us through all of them when we live “in faith”.
Remove all separation from God by reconciling your conflicts, starting with yourself!
Do not waste precise time and emotion on creating, embellishing, or exacerbating strife or malice or have an intent to persecute or revenge. It has no value and places you against God and His Word and creates a separation!
Do not be caught up in talking about others, gossiping, stirring up strife or malice against another, especially a family member, a close friend or a neighbor. Your spite only serves your own pride and self gratification.
Do not continue to attempt to prove a point through such actions, especially after repentance, apology and forgiveness, as Christ clearly tells us how we should handle situations of offense or mistreatment.
I could spend considerable time sharing my own thoughts, knowing my words are only, my words. So I declare God’s Word on this issue and I pray you receive His Message as it is succinctly clear on this type of situation:
1 Timothy 5:13 – “Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossipers and busybodies, saying things they ought not to.”
Romans 3:14 “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”
Proverbs 29:22 “Anger and malice produce disunity and discord… An angry person stirs up strife, And a hot-tempered person abounds in transgression”
Romans 1:28-32 ” ….. God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Proverbs 10:18 “He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.”

1 Peter 2:1 “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.”
1 Peter 3:7-9“To sum up, let all be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil, or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.”
