If they gossip about you then gossip about them too?
If you don't gossip about a person but he/she gossip about you will you do the same?
Jesus teaching "do unto them as you want them to do unto you" this is the what the believer should follow.
If they are selfish. Don't be selfish if you want to receive aboundantly.
Though it is so hard to do, Love your enemy even if they gossip about you.
Remember that the way to heaven is narrow.
Acts 14:22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said.We must go through many hardship in order to enter the kingdom of God. This narrow way will lead us to eternal life - to be with God forever.
Psalm 119:14 I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.Isn't it hard for you to obey God's command? Are you complaining because His commands are tough? But the attitude of the Psalmist here is a wonderful model for us to follow. He is so positive, cheerful and greatly glad in following God's command like a person who received a million pesos!
In the same way, we should have joy in following God's commandments for his commands are not burdensome/heavy and this is our expression of our love for God: "to obey HIS commands!"
