“Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another” (Proverbs 25:9)
Today’s Morsel: Most people, when confronting others about something that someone told them that the person said about them, will often hear from the person, who told you? If the person does not have wisdom, because of their inward anger, they will expose the person who told them thus putting the person that told them in grave danger every time. Solomon says that we should debate our cause with our neighbor ourselves. In other words, do not ever reveal the source. But often, when confronted, people will deny that they said it. Therefore, we can either take it two ways. We can accept it as fact and confront the person, or we can do nothing and just pray for them as well as the person who told us. I always find that the latter works best.
Sing: The blood, that Jesus shed for me, way back on Calvary, it is the blood, that gives me strength, from day to day, it will never lose its power. For it reaches to the highest mountain, and it flows to the lowest valley. It is the blood, that gives me strength from day to day, it will never lose its power.
Thought For Today: Don’t ever reveal who told you.
