If you want to do God’s will and soar to the heights He has for you, you have to ask yourself, “Who am I connected to?” and “Are they helping me grow?”
Here are 10 signs your friends aren’t healthy.
#1 They are a gossiper.
“A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.” (Proverbs 11:13 NIV)
If they gossip about others to you, they’ll gossip about you to others. Gossipers divulge private matters. They lack discretion and can be very messy. Often, they spread rumors—whether purposely or accidentally—because they enjoy sharing bad news. You can’t trust them to hold anything in confidence.
#2 They are a busybody.
“…And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to.” (1 Timothy 5:13 NIV)
Busybodies are always meddling in the affairs of others. They don’t have enough going on in their own lives, so they stick their noses in places they don’t belong. They offer advice when no one’s asking and are always found scavenging for scraps of information. They aren’t healthy and feel they have to know everybody’s business and interject their two cents. Their “How are you?” is not a genuine question. It is loaded with hopes of getting juicy insights about your personal matters.
