Now it’s your turn

  

Are you Critical?

   

Criticism
the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes

Here’s what the Bible says about criticism


Count yourself blessed every time someone 
cuts you down or throws you out, 
every time someone smears or blackens your name 
to discredit me. 
What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort 
and that that person is uncomfortable.
Luke 6:22

Don’t pick on people, 
jump on their failures, 
criticize their faults
—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. 
Don’t condemn those who are down; 
that hardness can boomerang. 
Be easy on people; 
you’ll find life a lot easier.
Luke 6:37

Those people are on a dark spiral downward.
But if you think that leaves you on the high ground
where you can point your finger at others,
think again.
Every time you criticize someone,
you condemn yourself.
It takes one to know one.
Judgmental criticism of others is
a well-known way of escaping detection
in your own crimes and misdemeanors.
Romans 2:1

3 It matters very little to me what you think of me,
even less where I rank in popular opinion.
I don’t even rank myself.
Comparisons in these matters are pointless.
4 I’m not aware of anything that would
disqualify me from being a good guide for you,
but that doesn’t mean much.
The Master makes that judgment.
5 So don’t get ahead of the Master
and jump to conclusions with your judgments
before all the evidence is in.
When he comes,
he will bring out in the open and place in evidence
all kinds of things we never even dreamed of—
inner motives
and purposes
and prayers.
Only then will any one of us get to hear the
“Well done! of God.
1 Corinthians 4:3-5

2 No insults, no fights.
God’s people should be bighearted and courteous.
3 It wasn’t so long ago that we ourselves were
stupid and stubborn,
dupes of sin,
ordered every which way by our glands,
going around with a chip on our shoulder,
hated and hating back.
Titus 3:2-3

Don’t bad-mouth each other, friends.
It’s God’s Word,
his Message,
his Royal Rule,
that takes a beating in that kind of talk.
You’re supposed to be honoring the Message,
not writing graffiti all over it.
James 4:11
