Jeremiah 17:9-10. This verse describes hearts that contaminate every issue. In counseling session, a counselee is often given freedom to talk about sins of others that are not present. And here, counselors can be self-deceived in their importance in the lives of fellow believers. We can be guilty of sinning by permitting others to sin through their speaking or writing.
It's important to know the devastating nature of some of the sinful statement made by counselors and counselees. Words can carry great destructive power and can reveal a person's conviction. Words can poison the soul of both speaker and his audience. The fire kindled by the tongue can start with the spark of gossip and tale-bearing and can lead to misunderstanding, ill-feelings, acrimony, and bitterness. This destroys people’s privacy and grows a wildfire.
How important is our conversation with one another?
In the Bible, individuals are to communicate with each other. Jesus Christ taught about the significance of words as in Matthew 12:35-37, “…by words you shall be justified and by your words you shall be condemned.” And He said this to the pharisees.
Idle and careless words can:
- Tear down relationships
- Can demean friendships
- Can end marriage relationships
This can be evident in social media where it’s unrestraint. We’re living in an age of outrage among Christian people. Hurt feelings, anger, frustration, self-protection, victim mentality, sinful responses to criticism and people.
We should not listen to this. Shred any written sinful conversation. Delete it. Pause that conversation. Deal with the person themselves and do not indulge in sinful speaking.
