BUSYBODIES

 
“As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to” (1Tim 5:11-13)

The words ‘talking nonsense’ in the scripture above mean the following:
To Bubble (like a foam on the sea, superficial, foolish talk); to be a Tattler (an informer against others to gain financial reward), To Prater (long and idle talk); to be a Garrulous person (pointlessly and annoying talkative), Idle (vain, unemployed, lazy) and vain (useless, unsuccessful, over proud in his appearance, foolish, silly)
To be Idle it means to be unemployed or careless, to lack evident means of support, hating work and good holy activity.
A busybody is someone who is more interested in the affairs of others than of his own. He volunteers to help when help is not needed. He meddles and trespasses in the lives of others, giving advice without restrain or good taste. This person is usually curious about others and indulges in gossip. He may be nice and generous but he is rude and annoying when provoked.
These are evil spirits who desire to destroy the anointing, the unity and the peace of the Spirit in the church. Watch them who only talk ‘in flesh’! Avoid them or rebuke them, as the Spirit leads. Do not help them financially, so that you do not share in their sins. Do not be led by appearances when making money donations. Many have ignorantly sponsored the agents of the devil. Go closer only to people who are truly born again and Spirit filled! Be wise!
And lastly, build up this holy habit to always give God all the glory!

In Christ I declare:
I hate to be idle
I hate to be a busybody!!
If I am jobless, I shall go to the house of God and find something to do there!
God will reward me for my labor!
I open my mouth to speak only words filed with wisdom and grace!
In Jesus name
Amen!
