Attitudes

First Warning Controversial topic ahead and this is been in my mind for the last year and decided I will get it out. It is not about anyone one person.

Why the topic of attitudes?  Because, as a Christian woman I see so much of the high school look down at others or the gossip attitude among us so called sisters in the Lord.  I don't care if its Facebook or in real life.  We are to be sisters in the Lord not catty claws out attacking each other.  Yes they are areas we will not feel the same on who cares if it is not a salvation issue.
I know personally I do get treated sometimes like a leper  for one reason is because I wear skirts all the time.  I don't believe is is something for everyone it is a personal conviction of mine only, but it seems to rub other women the wrong way.  Different ideas on non-salvation issues should not separate us from fellowship with others. Even sometimes its as simple as you go to a different church than I do so I will look down upon you attitude.  If the church the other lady is going to does not teach heresy then they are also doing the Lord's work.   We need to stop this under the skin bickering and gossiping and destroying other women and be sisters in Christ.
Doesn't Titus 2:1-5 say " But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine; that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love,  in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanders, not given to much wine, teachers of good things - that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed"  Did you catch that we are blaspheming the word of God when we are not discreet, chaste or when we are slanders.  When we treat other sisters in the Lord with disgust (yes I have seen that) or bad attitudes then we are in the wrong not matter what you think of the other person.  We are to love others the scriptures say John 13:35 "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another"  its means we are to have love for other believers.  So don't treat each other like trash. We are to be Christian woman that love each other not back biting women.  So please forgive any women (myself included) that have had this attitude and lets ask God for wisdom and to remember to love each other.

  1. I'm not sure I realized that you always wear skirts. Now that you mention it, I can see it. :) This is a topic that we are all guilty on at some time or another. We're supposed to show the world how this fellowship thing is done, and we are failing miserably! Thank you for being open with it--constant reminders are a must for this issue. Be blessed today, friend.
