No More Criticism

"No More Criticism"

     Some people in this world just love to criticize, ridicule, accuse, and point fingers at other people as if there was nothing at all wrong with the one who is doing the criticizing. It is akin to when the people brought the woman who was caught committing adultery before The Lord JESUS and asked Him what to do about her. After writing something in the dirt, He stood up and said these words in John 8:7, "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. It can be so easy to criticize, ridicule, accuse, point fingers, and throw stones at others when you are blind to your own faults. It can be so easy to do these things as well when you do know that you have faults but you just choose to ignore them. Criticizing, ridiculing, accusing, and all of the rest is something that tends to bring satan great joy because he is, of course, the accuser of the brothers. He is very good at doing it, and I see many of you today who are following his example. 
     Now listen to Me, My beloved children, learn to remove such evil acts as criticizing, ridiculing, pointing fingers, accusing, and throwing stones at others from your repertoire. Remember these words from Luke 6:31, Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Also, learn to be mindful of your own faults and shortcomings, and then maybe you will not be so quick to point fingers at and criticize other people. Another thing to remember is to try and look for the good in others rather than always looking for the bad or the worst in them. This is especially true if the person you want to criticize and do the other things to is of the household of faith. That My child is where Mark 12:31 comes into play which says, love thy neighbor as thyself. Learn to stop criticizing, accusing, pointing fingers, throwing stones, and ridiculing people, and a blessing you will be to and for others, in JESUS' Most Precious and Holy Name.
