(Pro 25:9 KJV) Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:
One of the repeated lessons of Proverbs is to slow down, think and not rush into anything. That is the issue again here. How often do we get into a discussion and have it degenerate into a heated argument and then we end up sharing something that was not meant to be shared? It could be a struggle someone else is having. They may have even had victory and you are just sharing the results, but it was not your place to share.
This is not a command to refrain from heated discussions. It is not an expectation that we just agree with everything we hear. It is an instruction to be careful of what we share about others.
So? Have some great discussions this year. People need to hear truth. Make sure the truth you share is in the public domain.
