THE SNAKE THAT POISONS EVERYONE

Team Granite, I found this little ditty and it is worth sharing.  As leaders you are held to a higher standard both by JESUS and OUR CHURCH.  The bar is set high, and never forget that as a leader you have an enemy looking to use anything and everything he can to DESTROY YOUR INFLUNCE and YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO LEAD.  So please take the following words very seriously.  Its not your reputation I'm only concerned about, its JESUS' and His brides.

It topples governments, wrecks marriages, ruins careers, busts reputations, causes heartaches, nightmares, indigestion, spawns suspicion, generates grief, dispatches innocent people to cry in their pillows. Even it's name hisses.


It's called GOSSIP. Office gossip. Shop gossip. Party gossip. It makes headlines and headaches. Before you repeat a story, ask yourself:


Is it true?  Is if fair?  Is it necessary?  If not, shut up!

TEAM GRANITE let me know you have read this, and if you are a H.L.L. let me know that you shared this out with your team.  There's too  much at stake to play games.  GRANITE is in an amazing time of BLESSING and FAVOR, and nothing will sacrifice that quicker than GOSSIP, and LACK OF UNITY!

 Proverbs 11:9A, "With their words, the godless destroy their friends,..."  nlt 

GOSSIP will not be tolerated in our church, not here, not now, not ever, CAN I GET A WITNESS!

Ephesians 4:29, "When you talk, do not say harmful things, but say what people need—words that will help others become stronger. Then what you say will do good to those who listen to you."  NCV
