Despicable intrigues

Good people obtain favor from the LORD,
but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes.
Proverbs 12:2

Those who love to make use of intrigue are people who act covertly to satisfy their perverse desires to hurt and create conflicts. Some do it through the dissemination of innocent gossip that turns out to be not so innocent as his words are full of hatred and violence. Others dedicate their lives to making trouble and become intrigue professionals. Intrigues destroy friendships, peace and the sanity of those who are involved in them. Those who use the intrigue are people who seem outwardly calm and full of good intentions but actually are consumed inside by hate and bitterness even though they may not be aware of what is developing inside them. They are also people who seek and crave attention from others and the only way they can get it is by being bearers of imbroglio and confusion that are of interest only to the curious and idle.

The word of God tells us that those who act this way will receive God’s condemnation because he is not pleased at with this behavior. We must always be very careful about the words we use when we communicate with others. The opportunity to be misunderstood is always present and even though we try we can not always be sure that we have been fully understood. So if you have something to say about someone, it is best to go directly to the person concerned and not discuss our views with others because we may inadvertently  risk becoming intriguers. Always look for the good of others and not their harm, edification and not destruction. Thus we will be aligned with God’s will and not with the enemy’s plans. To God alone be the glory!
