Why don’t we try to live by the Golden Rule of Luke 6:31?

This is addressed to the gaggle of ladies at Walmart that need to find more to do with their time than gossip.

Ladies you know there are disabled people that need a ride to their doctor, there are elderly people in the nursing homes that could use a visit or if you have nothing else to do help keep Franklin County clean and pick up trash around the county.

Ladies you need to think that untrue gossip is malicious and hurtful. If you dislike the individual, remember that those individuals have children and family that will be hurt by your gossip.

Maybe we need to refer to 1 Timothy 5:13; And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not, Proverbs 19:9; A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish, and James 4:11; Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 

Just so the ladies know that the lies they were telling is not true I decided 12 years ago that my children would always come first in my life therefore there is no time for any man or woman in my life (ladies you know what I mean).

I thank God that the lady that was overhearing your conversation had the guts to come and ask me herself instead of talking your lies and spreading them further.

It is a shame that we as Christians don’t live our lives the way that is pleasing to God.

Ladies I forgive you for you know not what you say.

For everyone else that has not figured out yet what this article is about I’ll close by saying that I am a heterosexual white female that prefers to live my life with my children and my friends than be a harlot.

Maybe if we worry about ourselves instead of everyone else this world would become a great place to be again.

Ladies why don’t we try to live be the Golden Rule of Luke 6:31; And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
