Do you ever judge someone or criticize others? I challenge you to go all day without saying anything negative about someone else. If we, as Christians, would show love and mercy to others and not criticize them, this world would be a totally different place. Do you think you could go all week without judging someone? If you feel yourself wanting to criticize others..then say the following prayer and scriptures. Remember LOVE NEVER FAILS!!!
Help me, Lord, rise above the need to criticize others. May my own shortcomings humble me, and may I always be a source of genuine encouragement to my family and friends. AMEN!
Don’t criticize one another, brothers. He who criticizes a brother or judges his brother criticizes the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. James 4:11
Whoever shows contempt for his neighbor lacks sense, but a man with understanding keeps silent. Proverbs 11:12
Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word is a gift. Ephesians 4:29
Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out. Colossians 4:6
