It is easy to be critical of others. In fact, it seems to have become a national pastime. We seem to notice the negative things our friends and mate do, taking some pleasure in talking about them with others. All the while we lose sight of those same areas of concern in our lives. Scripture says, “A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.” (Proverbs 20:19) Determine to maintain healthy boundaries, honoring your friendships and marriage with confidence and protection.
