Practice Making Your Angry Face
Prov 25:23 The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
Back-stabbers, Back-biters, Back-Sliders. Sure, they need grace and forgiveness. But what they really need is to get back right with God! Proverbs tells us to give them a displeased look of anger to put a stop to their hurtful ways.
You know the look. It's the one you got when you accidentally taped over your wedding video. It's the one you received when you forgot your child's school concert.
Give that same look to the guy or gal going around separating one friend from another with their razor sharp, poison dipped tongue. Let them know that your ears are not going to be a dumping ground for their garbage. The responsibility to stop the sowing of discord is ours and it is a simple as an angry countenance.
