Weaknesses of Others

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.
