Transparency is the answer to gossip and criticism. The people of Corinth assumed the worst of Paul when he didn't show up like he said, but hearing his side of the story reveals that he actually had their best in mind. When we believe the best in others until they lose our trust, our relationships are strengthened and grow by faith. When we discover that someone has wronged us or has sinned, no need to demonize the person, perhaps they just had a bad day or took out their frustration on us. Forgive others as we seek to be forgiven. Forgiving others and trusting that you will find forgiveness enables us to be transparent with our lives.
