After the flood, Noah’s son, Ham, found his father drunk and naked. He could have quietly covered him, but no, he rushed outside to tell his brothers. (Genesis 9:22)
How many times have we pointed out another’s failings when we might have done a kind deed instead?
The merciful, kind, and generous man benefits himself [for his deeds return to bless him], but he who is cruel and callous [to the wants of others] brings on himself retribution. (Proverbs 11:17, AMP)
Ham’s actions brought him nothing but trouble.
Cursed be Canaan! He shall be the servant of servants to his brethren! (Genesis 9:25, AMP)
How could ours do any less? Careful! Taste your words before you spit them out.
Prayer- Father forgive us when we relish in the weaknesses of others. Amen.
