Daily Wisdom 204: Proverbs 10:18

Proverbs 10:18 (NKJV) — 18 Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool.

Marks of a fool. Two characteristics of a fool are: (1) he pretends to love those he hates; and (2) he slanders. Slander is “a false tale or report maliciously  uttered, and tending to injure the reputation of another by lessening him in the esteem of his fellow citizens” (Webster).
