We all get stuck in phone calls or conversations at work with people who take effort — a lot effort. Maybe they gossip, complain, or just go on and on. Often we want to take the easy way out, but we’re called to do better.
Men of God want to be like our brother, and God, Jesus. Like him, we should build people up and point them to God rather than gossip, slander, and tear people down. We should point people to God in everything we say and take part in.
