Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but the discerning man controls his comments.
Whoever despises his neighbor sins, but whoever shows kindness to the poor will be happy.
1 Timothy 4:12-14
Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for other believers in your speech, behavior, love, faithfulness, and purity. Until I arrive, give your full concentration to the public reading of Scripture, to exhorting, and to teaching. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy when the elders laid their hands on you.
Why, then, do you criticize your brother? Or why do you despise your brother? For all of us will stand before the judgment seat of God.
For he does not despise nor detest the afflicted person; he does not hide his face from him, but he hears him when he cries out to him."
Amos replied in answer to Amaziah, "I am no prophet, nor am I a prophet's son, for I have been shepherding and picking the fruit of sycamore trees.
So I kept on saying, "Lord GOD, forgive please! How will Jacob stand, since he is so small?"
Fathers, do not make your children resentful. Otherwise, they'll become discouraged.
