Proverbs 15:14 (ESV)
14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
*While reading this, it spoke volumes to me...If we desire to understand people and things better, we should seek knowledge on best practices, how to handle it, or what to do and say. We should not speak on things we do not fully understand, did not seek clarity on, or haven't taken the time to research. Everyone thinks they know things, but the fact is that no one is well rounded in every topic. Furthermore, when it comes to people, you don't know why they made that decision or took that route until you seek wisdom..It can be as simple as speaking with them and asking God what to say, or as deep as needing to increase your knowledge by taking part in educational sources. Regardless, I hear so many people criticize others while commenting on what they don't know or believe to be right. Remember, God made us different for a reason..One of those reasons is to learn from each other. Per a conversation I was having last night, we think too much into things or are quick to criticize others before being like God, and learning to understand through love before we jump to a conclusion. Besides, some of us are seeking someone to understand, and to receive that harvest you need to sow that type of seed. Let's work on not putting our mouth on someone or something that we haven't expanded our minds to investigate and asked God what to do and say first.
