The Five Points of Criticism

Mark Dever has an insightful (and to me, convicting) post on how to give godly criticism. Summary: it should be done . . .
  1. “Directly, not indirectly”
  2. “Seriously, not humorously”
  3. “As if it’s important, not casually”
  4. “Privately, not publicly”
  5. “Out of love for them, not to express your feeling or frustration”
Read the whole thing.
