No Biting, please

PSALM 15:3

He who does not backbite with his tongue
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;


This week is my first week of my commitment to becoming a mature Christian.  (hahahah, that makes me laugh)  Following Rick Warren’s, “Bible Study Methods,” and his first year plan…I’m starting with Psalm 15 (New King James version).  And I had to read, and reread verse 3.  In fact, I had to look up the definition of “backbite,” as all I kept picturing was the infamous boxing match between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, where Tyson bit a piece of Holyfield’s ear off, and that became known as the BITE FIGHT.   Normally, I don’t watch boxing, yet I was present to watch that one on live TV.

Obviously, that’s not what’s being discussed here.  Backbite is defined as:

to attack the character or reputation of (a person who is not present)

I guess that’s another way to say, “Don’t talk behind someone’s back?” (or you might end up with a monkey on your back?) so don’t be mean, you big meanie.  Okay, God, my father, is saying to play nicely.  I think I can do that.

  1. In the beginning, Sandi created a new blog and it was initially without form, and empty; and a blank page was upon the face of it. But soon the spirit of Sandi’s writing emerged and readers saw that it was good—a first post! :O)
