Criticism is a work of the enemy to get you to doubt yourself. When there is something you truly need to know it will come as instruction without accosting your emotions or spirit. If you are criticized you must forgive and release the offense. If you are the one criticizing someone else, you need to turn from that practice and ask to be forgiven. Be at peace as much as possible, and treat one another with respect and kindness, says the Lord. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
