Things Women Do to Hurt Each Other

I was doing some research around the internet and found this article.    I thought about whether this stuff happens at Calvary, I pray it doesn't, but since we are all sinners & fall short, I'm sure it happens sometimes.  Over and over in scripture gossip and inhospitality are listed with murder and sexual sin.  We often zoom in on the things that others do and forget that gossip is on the list.

Look at Romans 1: 29

29 They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters,[f] insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die—yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practice them.

Did you see it?  Yep, gossip right in there with slander, murder and rebellious toward parents. 
We have to be careful, of what we say, and of what we think.  The mouth produces what starts in the brain.  We have to practice, to train our brains to think good thoughts, think well of each other, and focus on the good intentions each person has.  Enjoy each other, the eccentricities can be annoying or funny & delightful depending on our attitude.
