Loving one’s Neighbor as Oneself

Upon consideration, we find that the fulfillment of the obligation to judge people favorably and the obligation to guard one’s tongue, are dependent upon the mitzvah of “loving one’s neighbor as oneself.”  If one truly loves his neighbor, he will surely refrain from speaking lashon hora about him and he will do his utmost to find grounds to judge him favorably. ~ The Choftez Chayim zt”l
