The Blessing of Criticism

Based on a story by Norman Vincent Peale

When someone criticizes you harshly, how do you react?  The Apostle Paul advises us to, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them” (Romans 12:14). Instead of defending yourself or responding unkindly, try praying that the person who offended you will have a life filled with blessings.  

Welcome criticism as an opportunity to reflect and use criticism as an opportunity to identify any changes you can make to improve future work. There is often a tendency, when criticized, to criticize in return. But when you respond to criticism with kindness, you deflect negativity and create goodwill. 

Instead of interpreting criticism as a personal assault, see it as a tool for self-improvement. Critics, even though they can be somewhat difficult at times, unknowingly fuel your journey towards growth and self-realization.  

So welcome criticism with an open heart, reply with kindness, and release any lingering bitterness. By mastering this approach, you not only polish your character but help create a loving and understanding community.
