[Manna - December 1]
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Matthew 22:39
YOU would not want your neighbor to use brain and tongue in evil surmises and slanders against you; and you should not do so to him....the law of the Lord commands that all under His Covenant shall not utter one solitary suspicion against a neighbor: and that if suspicion beyond knowledge is forced upon the mind by associated circumstances, the new mind shall promptly, with its native benevolence, counterbalance the suspicions by suggestions of the possibility of misinformation or misinterpretation and always give the apparently guilty the benefit of the doubt.
