When a man is a critical person, it often shows that he has a wicked heart. Beware of the person who finds fault with everybody and everything. How careful we ought to be not to criticize, because we ourselves have so many faults.
Galatians 6:1 says, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”
If somebody has fallen and done wrong, don’t criticize him—help him. Lift him up. It’s the same thing Jesus said when they wanted to stone the woman taken in adultery: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her” (John 8:7).
How careful we ought to be in criticizing others. How ashamed we ought to be to criticize other people when we have so many faults in our hearts and in our own lives.
