“He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him” Proverbs 18: 13
Imagine someone who enjoys getting into other people’s issues! Often, when such person is asked to give his judgement, he would tend to please those that listen to him first even before he fully understands what the issues are really about.
If you are in the habit of judging others, I bet you must put a stop to this. God is not happy that you should judge other people. In fact, you have no right to do this.
Also, you don’t have to give your own judgement to what happened between your friends when you have not heard both sides of the story. You should make sure you are fully aware of what goes on in the midst of your friends, why they quarrel, what the problem was and how to solve it.
You don’t have to take side with one person in such issue because if you do you will end up being the one who gets the shame.
Never answer a matter until you have heard it, until you are sure that what you heard is correct and accurate, not a false. You must learn to respect how you talk, how you address others, how you interfere into another people’s business.
When you are able to master your life in the direction of God and in His laws, you will surely be at peace, and of course, your Christian life will not suffer.
Please, I implore you today, do not make foolish mistake like the gentile. Ensure you always hear out any matters first and be accurate about it before you give your judgement.
