How To Handle Criticism

Criticism is one of the toughest things in the world for us to face I want give four things that will help you when you face criticism.

1. Accept it! Again you are being criticized for one of two reasons: you are either doing a good job and someone don't like it or you are not doing a good job and someone loves you enough to tell you. Either way accept it.

2. Analyze it! Consider what others are telling you and grow from it. Maybe there is one thing that person is telling you that God can use to grow you where you're at.

3. React! When someone criticizes you react by taking it to God and His Word and see if they were right. Do not, however, try to return criticism to get even. Man there are so many times I could roll off what's wrong with other people but if were doing to get even and not because God's Spirit is leading us then that is called disobiedence and is not from God's love.

4. Move on! Seriously some people hold on to one word of criticism for years. Hey here's a thought let it go! After you've taken the criticism to God and He's showed what to do with drop it and move on. You don't have time to dwell on the past.
