Open a grave!

6 November 2018

We shouldn’t be like flies, but like bees which buzz from flower to flower collecting pollen to make honey. We, too, should make honey, paying attention only to the good in others. Concerning those who condemn and speak badly about others, the psalmist and prophet David says: ‘their throat is an open grave’ (Ps. 5, 10). Open a grave and you’ll see the filth and stench that’s in it. The same stench, spiritual stench, comes from our mouth when we censure other people.
