Nehemiah 4:4 - "Hear, O our God, how we are despised! Return their reproach on their own heads and give them up for plunder in a land of captivity. Do not forgive their iniquity and let not their sin be blotted out before Thee, for they have demoralized the builders. “

What if the observation about the person is true?

Colossians 3:12-13 - And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.”

2. If you are listening to gossip... stop it!

Proverbs 17:4 - A wicked man listens to evil lips; a liar pays attention to a malicious tongue.

1 Samuel 24:9 - " Why do you listen when men say, 'David is bent on harming you'?

Haggai 2:11-14 - "Thus says the Lord of hosts, 'Ask now the priests for a ruling: 12 'If a man carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and touches bread with this fold, or cooked food, wine, oil, or any other food, will it become holy?' "And the priests answered and said, "No. "

13 Then Haggai said, "If one who is unclean from a corpse touches any of these, will the latter become unclean?" And the priests answered and said, "It will become unclean." 14 Then Haggai answered and said, "'So is this

people. And so is this nation before Me,' declares the Lord, 'and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean. When we speak unclean words - it makes us unclean...

Matthew 15:11 - What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.'"

3. Avoid people who gossip...

Proverbs 20:19: "He who goes about as a slanderer reveals secrets, Therefore do not associate with a gossip."

1 Corinthians 5:11 - "But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer.. . With such a man do not even eat."

4. Make it your ambition to heal wounds.

Proverbs 26:20 - For lack of wood the fire goes out, And where there is no whisperer, contention quiets down.

5. Some things need to be heard with a deaf ear.

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 "Do not pay attention to every word people say, or you may hear your servant cursing you - for you know in your heart that many times you yourself have cursed others."

Ephesians 4:29-32 - Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all

bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
