Stingy Criticism, Generous Grace - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole


Bible Verse: James 4:6

“And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’"

Reflect and Respond:

Jesus was both confident and humble. How does confidence in God allow you to be humble?


Lord, thank You for Your generous grace. Help me understand what it means to be truly humble and willing to build others up rather than tear them down. Amen.

We look forward to your comments and questions below!

Thank you
Nice video would love to put the title into practice
Far to often we for get as Jesus children we are to lead with His Love in all things. We must remember Jesus is leading the way and if we say we are Christians. We must remember material things hold on value. It is God Grace that Gives us His Victory. Let us remember when we feel like we are better than our brothers and Sisters it's then Jesus reminds us to look up and remember we not the only ones who do not get it right. For His Goodness Mercy's and Grace made New each morning tell us to Uplift Inspire encourage as Jesus did and does with us. We want everyone to see Jesus shinning bright within us. It is that simply smile that can make all the difference in someone's life. That smile can open the door to us telling them why we're smiling, because we are children of The One True King. Praise Jesus Glory to God. “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” Psalm 73:26 (KJV)
Thanks for that word of advice advising that I become stingy with my criticism but generous with God's grace. help me Lord, I pray.
Glory be to God. Truth...Yes and Amen, by the grace and help of God through Christ.
Yes, I try to stay very mindful of this and always praise those who work for me. Whenever I can , I jump in and let them know nothing they do, is something I would not do too. Then I thank the Lord for them and tell them I am grateful to God for them because I would not be able to do my job unless they did theirs!
Yes I will be stingy with my criticism and generous with God’s grace! I love what this video teaches and it’s fun too
Lord, thank you for reminding me of what my own life looked like - before trusting my life to you. I sin every day, yet you forgive me, may I show this forgiveness to others that have wronged me. 🙏
Give God the glory in all we do.
Thank you, Lord. Amen.
This is an area I struggle with, I will suddenly just say what I'm thinking not thinking of what I'm saying that could be hurtful or to critical. Lord, help me in this area of being critical and how I react to things.
