18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
I read this verse in my morning Bible study, and it's a doozy. Jesus said you didn't like John the Baptist and you don't like Me. You found fault with both of us. Some people are fault finders they walk in a room and their eyes immediately begin to search for perceived problems, and when the fault alarm goes off the tongue is activated.
I had a friend who wisely referred to them as devil sniffers. They will lock on a the trail of struggling Christian quicker than a red bone on a racoon at midnight in a creek bottom, and they are twice as verbal. I call them knit pickers, Jesus called them hypocrites. Before you come sniffing around my back door take a good sniff or two of your own back porch. They probably smell about the same, yours may smell worse.
