The easily embarrassed don’t learn. (Jewish Proverb)

We all know someone who likes to make jokes at the expense of others — even their friends. To them, it’s a “back-slapper,” but to the one being embarrassed, it’s not funny at all. If it was meant to help someone learn or improve, it’s not working. Better to save the offhand remarks and find a kind way to encourage your friend toward change.

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. (Romans 12: 10)
