Memorable Scripture: Don’t speak evil

James 4:11 Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.

Ouch!
How often do we speak evil of someone else?
James insists this should stop!
Although he mentions “a brother”, which indicates a fellow believer, I think it a good practice not to speak evil of anyone.
I find it difficult at times.
All it takes is one person to talk about someone and we all jump on the bandwagon.
The best response is to talk about them to God; pray for that person.
It is sure to help them and definitely help you!
