He that is void of wisdom despises his neighbor: but a man of understanding holds his peace.
He that despises his neighbor sins: but he that has mercy on the poor, happy is he.
1 Timothy 4:12-14
Let no man despise your youth; but be an example of the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you through prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
But why do you judge your brother? or why do you despise your brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was a herdsman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit:
Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech you: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
