Happy Sabbath Day! Faultfinding is one of the many sins that is condemned in the Bible. It can destroy families, friendships, and even stop countries from finding peace. As people that want to have peace with everyone, let us turn aside that which hurts the evil speaker and victim. Instead let us follow in God’s footsteps. Did you know?
- Faultfinding is when we find something wrong with a person instead of accepting them the way they are and still loving them
- Faultfinding, evil speaking, and backbiting are not the ways of God
- The Bible commands us to avoid “evil speaking”
- 1 Peter 2:1 – It tells us to “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you”
- Faultfinding is the opposite of unconditional love
- Faultfinding is the opposite of charity or the pure love of Christ
- Faultfinders will want you to apologize even if you are innocent of any wrongdoing
- If you apologize, then you are giving them grace even if they do not deserve it
- Let us lay aside all malice, guile, hypocrisies, envies, and all evil speaking (fault finding)
- It is better to love one another and find a remedy or cure to a problem
- Just love one another
