"What you have seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court,
for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame?
If you take your neighbor to court, do not betray another’s confidence,
or the one who hears it may shame you and the charge against you will stand."
- Proverbs 25:8-10
|Thomas Barrow from Downton Abbey|
No one likes a tattletale!
Sometimes appearances can be deceiving and what we think we see many not be the case. Solomon warns us from jumping to conclusions about what we think we see in our neighbor's business.
Solid advice for today because there are so many ways that we can find out about others and their lives. Be cautious and do the right thing when it comes to what we think we hear about others.
