Acts 14:1 When they got to Iconium they went, as they always did, to the meeting place of the Jews and gave their message. The Message convinced both Jews and non-Jews—and not just a few, either. But the unbelieving Jews worked up a whispering campaign against Paul and Barnabas, sowing mistrust and suspicion in the minds of the people in the street. The two apostles were there a long time, speaking freely, openly, and confidently as they presented the clear evidence of God’s gifts, God corroborating their work with miracles and wonders.
Anyone who has ever stepped out in faith at some point to honor the Lord and take a stand for righteousness knows what a whispering campaign is. Not everyone in this life desires things to go well and these days we even have professional "whisperers" who plant seeds of discord and dissension.
Someone once said that people are like buttons on an elevator-they will either take you up or they will take you down. I want to find those that lift me up with their words and their actions. Your words are seeds. The things you do are seeds. What comes out of your life and out of your mouth WILL produce something. People whisper when they don't want others to know what they are saying. Perhaps today, as a follower of Jesus, we could stop whispering and begin to speak out boldly for righteousness sake. The clear evidence of God's gifts are all around us and He might just want to use you for a miracle today! You don't have to whisper.
