Sensible silence.

It’s super easy to criticise others. It doesn’t take much to find fault with people in your family, in your class or on your sports team, does it? But Proverbs 11:12 (https://bit.ly/3t1GdTQ) says, ‘It is foolish to belittle one’s neighbour; a sensible person keeps quiet.’

Let’s try and remember these wise words, and say to ourselves, every time we’re tempted to be mean: ‘There’s a story here that I don’t know.’ Because we never know exactly what another person may be going through or dealing with. If we did, we’d see the wisdom in keeping quiet, and being kind.
