How Do You Handle It?

Humility

We have to acquire a peace and balance of mind such that we can give every word of criticism its due weight, and humble ourselves before every word of praise.

Dag Hammarskjold

These two situations, on opposite ends of the spectrum, show our true character. May we learn to find the kernel of truth in every critical remark and give glory to God through every word of praise!

  2. Critisim and negative statements are always hard to take but after the initial sting if we look at what was said, we may be able to better ourselves. I wish I always responded the way I should but alas I do not. - Sometimes it takes me awhile.
