Turning criticism into affirmation

How to Turn Criticism into Affirmation

No one escapes criticism. All of us have experienced the hurt — ranging from slightly offensive to soul-crushing — when someone says something negative about us.

Sadly, we often take that criticism and allow it to define us. We let someone else’s judgment intimidate us and hold us back, becoming enslaved to a version of ourselves that we are not.

The truth is, we don’t have to give others the power to define us. We can turn criticism into affirmation by using it to identify our positive God-given characteristics.

Only what's done for Christ will last

Only What’s Done for Christ Will Last

We are now almost two weeks into a new year — time marches on! I’m reminded of the plaque that hung at the bottom of my Grandma’s staircase that read:

Only one life, ’twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last.
