We think of tale bearing as a bit of harmless pastime, but let us consider the words of our Lord,
Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
That statement should scare is and drive us to our knees! I want the Lord to be kinder toward me than I have been toward others!
