The Critic

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary)


I suspect there is hardly anything more revealing about the condition of our souls than how we deliver criticism… and how we receive it.

I pray regularly for my own growth in kindness, the sort of kindness that lets others know they’re loved, not judged. To the degree that I love others as I love myself, I should be praying this for them as well!

  1. Just got to apply this in the ER where my mom and I await our turn. Mom is like so many others in here: scrunched over in pain. Less than half are speaking my language. But, I think they understand us.

    1. God bless you, sweet sister. I’m speaking now with God about your mother and you. And the ones who witness your life in Christ.
