Judgment and criticism are fruit of a deeper problem -pride. When the “I” in us is bigger than it should be, it will always cause the kinds of problems we are discussing. The Bible repeatedly warns us about being high-minded.
Whenever we excel in an area, it is only because God has given us a gift of grace for it. If we are high minded or have Assam exaggerated opinion of ourselves, then it causes us to look down on others and value them as less than we are. This type of attitude or thinking is extremely detestable to the Lord, and it opens many doors for the enemy in our lives.
