Don’t get upset by criticism. Value the fact that at least someone noticed what you did. (Chris Ware, American cartoonist)

No one likes to be criticized. Criticism is often very hard to take, especially when it is mean-spirited or offered out of a heart of jealousy. But legitimate criticism can be valuable in helping us evaluate our attitudes and actions. So, we should be aware of well thought-out critiques and try to learn from them, glad to be helped by the advice.

Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise (Proverbs 15:31).
