CRITICISM


WHAT YOU AND I SEE IN THE MIRROW IS TRULY THE ONLY VALID OBJECT FOR US TO CRITICIZE

CRITICISM
the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes:
synonyms: censure · condemnation · denunciation · disapproval ·

Matthew 7: 1 Do not judge and criticize and condemn [others unfairly with an attitude of self-righteous superiority as though assuming the office of a judge], so that you will not be judged [unfairly]. 2 For just as you [hypocritically] judge others [when you are sinful and unrepentant], so will you be judged; and IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR STANDARD OF MEASURE [used to pass out judgment], JUDGMENT WILL BE MEASURED TO YOU. 3 Why do you look at the [insignificant] speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice and acknowledge the [egregious] log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye,’ when there is a log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite (play-actor, pretender), first get the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

ONE LEGITIMATE GOAL OF CRITICISM LEAVE THE ONE WHOM IT IS DIRECTED AT FEELING THAT HE/SHE HAS BEEN HELPED











WHEN CRITICISM ATTACKS DO COME AS THE WILL
When we are criticized we ought to ask ourselves whether the criticism contains any truth. If it does, we should learn form it, even when it is not given with the right motivation and in the right spirit. The article then offered these four suggestions: (1) Commit the matter instantly to God, asking Him to remove all resentment or counter-criticism on your part and teach you the needed lessons. (2) Remember that we are all great sinners and that the one who has criticized us does not begin to know the worst about us. (3) If you have made a mistake or committed a sin, humbly and frankly confess it to God and to anyone you may have injured. (4) Be willing to learn afresh that you are not infallible and that you need God's grace and wisdom every moment of the day to keep on the straight path.
When we are criticized, let's accept what is true and act upon it, thereby becoming a stronger person. He who profits from rebuke is wise

AS EASILY AS WE FIND FAULT
WE WOULD ALL BE RICH
