Too quick to speak and judge others? Gospel singer Erica
Campbell shares Bible verses to help you do better

Article By Tanya Halton // Empowering Everyday Women Ministries News

FEBRUARY 8, 2017

In this social media age, it’s no secret that lots of people hop online, spew negative opinions,
spread gossip and judge other people they don’t know.

But gospel singer and nationally syndicated radio host Erica Campbell says stop it! And she’s
sharing Scripture to help those that struggle in this area.

“I know we live in a world where everyone wants their voice heard. You want your voice heard
sometimes more than you want to get the information or to be fully informed on what it is you’re
talking about,” explained the host of Get Up Mornings! With Erica Campbell in an Instagram video
featuring a snippet of her “Faith Walk” radio segment.
“People will give a strong opinion and post stuff, and argue down, and they only have a part of the
information,” said the GRAMMY® Award-winning “Help” singer, while dressed in simple black shirt,
blue denim pants and sporting a honey-blonde bob with a center part.

To drive home her point with biblical backing, the first lady of California Worship Center, which she
leads alongside her husband, Pastor Warryn Campbell, shared four verses:

    Ecclesiastes 5:3 - “A fool is known by the multitude of his words.”

    Proverbs 18:2 - “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his
    opinion.”

    Proverbs 29:11 - “A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.”

    Proverbs 1:7 - “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but a fool despises
    wisdom and instruction.”

Campbell also took special time to recommend the book of Proverbs to Christians, stating that it is
full of helpful wisdom “to handle your life a little bit better.”

“I know that we all want to have something to say, but sometimes, you don’t even know what you’re
talking about,” said the member of the sister-duo Mary Mary.

Campbell is known for doling out advice on the Internet. Her “Faith Talk” Instagram videos, which
help gain more support for the wife and mom’s burgeoning radio show, are full of biblical insights
and sound wisdom. They are also widely shared by other Christians and mainstream celebrities
alike.

Today, Campbell chose to assist her viewers and listeners in being more discerning, discreet and
wise in their communications and judgments.

“You can’t see a snapshot of somebody’s life and make a whole assessment of who they are. You
can’t see one moment in time and make an assessment of an entire race of people. You just can’t.
It’s foolish,” she said.

She's right.

Remember what Proverbs 4:7 KJV says: “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and
with all thy getting get understanding.”
