10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. (James 3:10 NIV)
When we move from speaking kindly to cursing those around us see that there is a double standard active in our lives. More than just angry words, but deriding others out of vain contempt.
Out of vain contempt because we have not walked a mile in their shoes. We do not know what causes anyone’s behavior day in and day out. Life can turn harsh in a flash and who are we to judge others.
Looking for the good may be harder, but enriches our lives as it enriches others.
