“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” –Jesus Christ

     In its most-basic definition a troublemaker is simply one who makes trouble. They are everyone. They can be found on the job, in the school, around the neighborhood, and even at the church. Whatever they are into, you can be sure they are doing what they do best: making trouble. Here’s a short list of their qualities:

They Create Unnecessary Drama. Trouble-makers not only feed off drama, they actually create it. They love it when something is wrong, but when nothing is wrong, they start something up.

They Pry into the Affairs of Others. They are nosy, busy-bodies who are dissatisfied with their own lives; therefore, they find it necessary to pry into whatever everyone else is doing.

They Keep Everyone Informed. That is a nice way of saying they gossip, they slander, they backbite; they spread news like butter on toast. Typically they do so without any regard for truth.

They are Glory-Hungry. Trouble-makers usually create drama to make themselves look better, or to feel better about themselves. They are typically full of pride, envy, and selfishness.

They have been Hurt. Oftentimes trouble-makers do what they do because they have been hurt. Unfortunately, they are motivated by revenge and retribution. They feel as though their pain will be alleviated if they make someone else feel it.
