- Talked about behind your back- and I don’t mean they were praying for you either; most likely they were talking some smack about you and it was gossip and/or slander!

- How about this one: flirted with your man! I am so not okay with that one, in fact, my fists might even come out swinging! Woman, you better back up before you get hurt!
- Hindered you in the ministry that God has called you to- this one saddens my spirit deeply. Sometimes to follow the Lord’s leading it takes a GREAT amount of faith to get out of the boat and walk on water to Jesus. He has called you to do something that you do not feel qualified nor equipped to do and now a Sister in Christ has stumbled you from following the Lord in ministry. Satan LOVES this one…actually, he loves all of the above.
I am sure you can add to, The Stinging Sisters List, but you get my point.
Confession time: because I don’t think I can write a post without being completely honest and real with you. As I looked back through The List, unfortunately over the years as I was growing in Christ (and still growing), you could find my name written down in several of those sections. Ouch!
“…for the accuser of our brethren, (Satan) who accused them (believers) before our God day and night, has been cast down.” Revelation 12:10 (my emphasis)
I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want in my heart is tear down another Sister in Christ. Satan does not need any more help in that department and I don’t want to be aligned with him.
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3,4
Live a poured out life for the Master,
