The Futility of Criticism - Integrity Moments - July 25

The Futility of Criticism

In the book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” the opening chapter drives home that many people think they’re faultless. Dale Carnegie gives the story of “Two Gun Crowley” as an example.

Crowley had been parking with his girlfriend when a policeman approached. Crowley shot the police officer. Then used the officer’s gun to shoot him again.

Later, while Crowley was in a police shoot-out, he wrote a blood-stained letter that said, “Under my coat is a weary heart, but a kind one – one that would do nobody any harm.”

Proverbs 16:2 teaches, “All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord.”

Many people cannot accept their own faults. When you desire to discipline someone like that remember criticism may be futile.
