James 4:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 Be willing to be made low before the Lord and he will exalt you!

11 Dear friends, as part of God’s family, never speak against another family member, for when you slander a brother or sister you violate[a] God’s law of love. And your duty is not to make yourself a judge of the law of love[b] by saying that it doesn’t apply to you,[c] but your duty is to obey it![d] 12 There is only one true Lawgiver and Judge, the One who has the power to save and destroy—so who do you think you are to judge your neighbor?
