The 3 C’s

“These people are grumblers and complainers, living only to satisfy their desires… But you, dear friends, must build each other up”  Jude 1:16,20 (NLT)

I know of many who communicate using the “three C’s”; complaining, criticizing, correcting. This can be as contagious as a bad cold. The “three C’s” are symptoms of an infection in our spirit. As we go throughout our daily routine, we need to listen closely to what we are saying and thinking. If this infection isn’t treated, our relationships and our inner-peace will corrode.

The cure for this is in verse 20, “build each other up”. Prayer, encouragement, and looking for the good in others are our high powered vitamins.


Heavenly Father, alert me when the bad symptoms and infections creep into my spirit. Give me the strength to be an encourager. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
