And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.( Matthew 28:12-13)
Things which cause the spirit of gossip to come upon people
And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.( Esther 3:5)
There is a fine line between hatred and jealousy. A person becomes jealous because he/she thinks they deserve what another person has received but hatred of a person is something that comes because of an abnormal dislike of a person. You don’t have to like everybody but just make sure that your dislike is not extreme.
Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.( Matthew 26:3-4)
The reason why the Gospel was fought from the time of Jesus Christ is because many hated Jesus but didn’t necessarily hate God. The reason why there are many things which want to make it look Like Jesus was not the son of God or real is because many hate him and they have been gossiping about him for over two thousand years, this is the main reason why men of God especially those who display the supernatural power of God are always surrounded by rumours.
Besides that, they learn to be idlers, going about from house to house, and not only idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying what they should not.( 1 Timothy 5:13)
The best definitely of a Lazy person is someone who appears to be active but his actions don’t held results. The lazy will always gossip about the rich and successful. This is why there are always rumours surrounding rich people.
The slothful man saith, There is a lion without,I shall be slain in the streets.( Proverbs 22:13)
Lazy people always have an excuse for their failure and poverty and one of their excuses is that the rich and powerful are doing something which hinders them.
Last year I went to the SB Youth Expo in the University of Johannesburg’s Auckland Park Campus. When I got into the hall, the speaker who happens to be a young (about 2 years older than me) black entrepreneur had finished his presentation and was taking questions. Then a guy told the speaker that people don’t support black owned businesses and also gave examples, he also said that the black child is being kept down. The speaker disagreed and asked this fellow whether he started something and he was hindered because he was black and the guy said no but was adamant on making the speaker agree with him.
A lazy man Will always have an excuse, hence I will not be surprised if that guy never starts something because he believes he is bieng kept down because he is black
