3 Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.
reflection: am i a fool?
9 Who can say, "I have cleansed my heart; I am pure and free from sin"?
reflection: r u pure in the eyes of the Lord?
10 The LORD despises double standards of every kind.
reflection: this sounds the same in Matthew 1 "Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. 2 For others will treat you as you treat them. F47 Whatever measure you use in judging others, it will be used to measure how you are judged. 3 And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye F48 when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying, 'Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log from your own eye; then perhaps you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye.do we see others' speck n forgotten the log in our eyes? this is double standard!!!
19 A gossip tells secrets, so don't hang around with someone who talks too much.
reflection: when people are talking among themselves, are we the one who goes near and put our ears near the people who are talking, or are we fleeing frm such people who gossips? if they are not gossping, then why we want to know so much thing from other people? if we can't help the situation, what's the benefit of knowing other people's personal secret?
