“Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty.”
When a child goes to tell his mother what his brother may or may not have done, he is often scolded for tattle telling.
Accusing without proof is slander and will often cause us to regret our decision. If there is not sufficient cause to accuse, we must refrain from doing so altogether.
“Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.”
Making accusations can be dangerous to our own reputation.
Our testimony is imperative to our fruitfulness as a child of God.
If we hurt our character, we hurt the cause of Christ.
“Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
We must submit ourselves to the Wisdom from above before we make accusations against one another.
Job 29-30 | 1 John 3 | Proverbs 21
