Therefore,make yourself lowly and Hashem will raise you up.

 

"Rash Lakish said, "The person who speaks Lashon Hara, piles sins up to the sky." A person gets two punishments for speaking badly about someone. First, he gets a punishment for the evil that he spoke. Secondly, he gets the sins of the person that he spoke about. (Ein Yaakov) Try to make it a habit to think of excuses for people , when it seems that they have done something wrong. However, when you think about yourself, do not make excuses. You should take responsibility for what you have done.
