If you’re facing criticism

facing criticismdon’t despair. You’re probably doing something right.

Consider Joseph. For having a call of God on his life, he was reviled by his brothers and rebuked by his parents. Eventually the brothers sold him into slavery, after very nearly killing him.

And in the end, God raised up Joseph to great leadership in Egypt. He was the catalyst for enlarging Israel in the incubator of Egypt. He was the man for the plan, but the plan was unrecognizably from God. How did Joseph not spiral in depression from such rejection from his loved ones?

  1. Thanks, I needed that today. 🙂

  2. I used to do somersaults to avoid criticism. It seemed to cut to my core.

    We are perfect as our true self, yes flawed but that is what identifies us from another.

    We are on this journey together, we share the same not knowing what is around the next bend.

    What is permanent is not owned and even the rich can not buy health or safety in this life.

    We come into this world with nothing and as far as I can tell leave with the same. All that other stuff we valued must not be valuable

  3. “Say: “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Surah Az-Zumar 39: 53)

  4. Good point from Joseph’s life
