Have you ever spent much time around someone who is critical? They criticize situations. They criticize people. They criticize those in authority. Many even criticize the church and their brothers and sisters.
In my observation, those who continually critcize are, generally speaking, unhappy and miserable people. Nothing is ever right. They find fault with nearly everything and everyone around them. Frankly, they are not pleasant people to be around.
The Bible has some things to say about this. Let’s go right to the Source.
James 4:11-12 CSB
 Don't criticize one another, brothers and sisters. Anyone who defames or judges a fellow believer defames and judges the law. If you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.  There is one lawgiver and judge who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
James 5:9 CSB
Brothers and sisters, do not complain about one another, so that you will not be judged. Look, the judge stands at the door!
It has been said that there are three questions we should ask ourselves before indulging in criticism of others:
- . What good does it do your brother or sister you are criticizing?
- What good does it do yourself?
- What glory for God is in it?
Until next time...enjoy the journey!
