“How is this possible?” the people exclaimed “He’s just a carpenter son and we know his mother and his brothers…. And his sisters, they all live here. How can he be so great?” And they became angry with him! Matt 13: 55-57.
When the critics comes calling please do not miss critical point; that some people are meant to talk against you and what you are doing whether good or bad, that their comment should not stop you, but rather sharpen you for the better. If they speak against Jesus, sent from God, then you are not too holy to be excluded. Every great man that walks upon the surface of the earth achieved their greatness not because they do not have critics, but because they do not forget the critical points. When the fang of the critics points at you, stay in there, fighting towards victory.
Theodore Roosevelt, the former American President once said “it is not the critic who counts; not the man who points how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweet and blood; who strives valiantly errs and comes short again and again; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; and who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement ; and who at worst, if he fails, at least fail while daring greatly; so that his place shall never with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”.
