Where there is wisdom there is strength, where there is strength, there is understanding.  – Bar 3:14

Reflection.  People are quick to believe idle rumors, false reports, and malicious gossip.  Rumors are not facts, and malicious gossip is the deliberate distortion of the truth.  Don’t be like the fool who rushes to judgment.

Prayer.  Dear Lord, make me wise, slow to judge, and charitable in dealing with others.
