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.
