Acts 6:1 “…there arose a complaint by the Hellenistic Jews against the Hebraic Jews that their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution.”

Nothing divides a workplace or a Church more than grumbling, complaining, and gossip spreading.  Suddenly you have one side pitted against another…flamed by second-hand information, false assumptions, and passive-aggressive behavior.  My mantra during all the years I managed large medical staffs used to be, ” I will act, but I refuse to react to you running in my office tattling on someone else.”  Satan loves to divide and wound groups of people who were once one happy family.  So ask yourself the next time someone grumbles and murmurs against another to you, “Do I want to be part of the problem, or part of the solution?”  For it’s so much easier to talk about a person than to talk directly to them.
