Read Mt 18.6-10, Mk 9.38-50, Lk 9.49-50 – Ever meet someone with the gift of criticism? Someone who could find something wrong with perfection? They play Devil’s Advocate so often, you’re starting to wonder who’s side they’re really on. Now don’t get me wrong, criticism is a good thing when it is appropriately used. I like critique, probing questions, and a little push back. It keeps me straight. But I can only handle so much before I start to wilt. Maybe this is what Jesus means when He’s exhorting John (and the rest of us); “For everyone will be salted with fire. “Salt is good, but if the salt should lose its flavor, how can you season it? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” Are we salting one another (Heb 10.24-25)? Are we salting one another too much?
