“Let’s Work on Phasing out Our Quick to Criticize Game”

“We’ve got to bench the criticizer in us. Our criticism of others only serves ourselves in an attempt to give us comfort for our shortcomings.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Romans 14:1 (NLT) – Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.

“When it comes to my game plan to serve the Lord, one of the key things I continually work hard to try to keep on the bench is any selfish criticism of others. It’s not an easy task, sometimes we criticize with no ill intent, but we have to realize that God has His crew of angels up in heaven and He has us, His earthly servants. And here on earth, part of our service to God is to offer protection, provide comfort, and deliver His Word to others. Let’s be team players and help each other improve our game to keep our prejudices and preconceived notions on the sidelines. If we have been blessed with overcoming financial challenges, addictive behaviors, or even health and weight issues – let’s kick our judgments of others to the curb, see folk for who they are, and use our experiences to bring out the potential that’s in them. Hey, the bottom line is you and I need to help each other look at those around us with angelic vision as opposed to using a lens of criticism.” – #ToddCPittman
