Sometimes it is good for us to critically look at issue and give our opposing view. But not every time on every issues. When you seem not to see the good side of everything then you have made yourself a critic. When nothing is good except the ones you do then you have made yourself a perfectionist nuisance.

When people ask for your opinion and all that you do is to disregard theirs and enforce yours. You make them feel inferior and you become a dictator.

God wants everyone to be saved through faith in Jesus. But not everyone accept His offer. What did he do? He didn’t force His opinions on them. He respects their will, even though everyone will be judged by the same standard through his son Jesus.

If God didn’t force Himself on man, then you don’t need to. Avoid being a critic over other people’s opinion. Learn to see the good sides of things. Benjamin Franklin once said: “if you argue and rankle and contradict, you may achieve a victory sometimes; but it will be an empty victory because you will never get your opponent’s good will”.

The Boston Transcript once printed this:
“Here lies the body of William Jay,
Who died maintaining his right way
He was right, dead right, as he sped along
But he’s just as dead as if he were wrong”
