News Item 318. Mishlei 18-03 (Dishonor)

 
A new proverb was posted to the Mishlei section on Wednesday, May 17.
The way a person treats others has a direct effect on his own character. Thus, the Mishnah teaches that one who honors others is himself worthy of honor (Avos 4, 1). The reverse effect is also true. A person who disrespects others stamps himself with dishonor and reveals himself to be a wicked person (רָשָׁע) .
