Shut down self-criticism

Self criticism, even when it is deserved, leaves us crippled. We hobble around on crutches pretending no one sees. They see we can’t get out of ourselves. They see our selfishness.

Practicing love, getting outside of ourselves, shuts self criticism right down. God knows us and He knows what we need. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He doesn’t condemn us but shows His steadfast love day after day. He puts it into practice.

My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves. 1 John 3:18-20

May we love like God loves. May we put it into practice.
