From the October 1908 issue of The Christian Science Journal


A WISE proverb says, "Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him;" and in Psalms we read that those who shall abide in God's tabernacle, God's holy hill, are those who backbite not with the tongue, nor take up a reproach against a neighbor. The apostle James writes, "If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body ;" and again, "Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
