Three Ways We Tear Down Others

Chelsea and I shift gears to how we can find ourselves talking bad about others outside our home: extended family, neighbors, friends, coworkers, or church members.

Why do we speak negatively to or about others?

Envy, grudges, and competition can all make us slander people who are not the closest in our lives.

What are ways we tear down others?

  1. Say negative things about or to them
  2. Gossip
  3. Bear false witness
