Mark Batterson writes: “Let me tell what I’ve learned about dealing with criticism. First of all, don’t let an arrow of criticism pierce your heart unless it first passes through the filter of Scripture. Second, you’ve got to come to terms with the fact that you can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time… You’re going to offend someone. You’ve got to decide who. My advice: Offend Pharisees, those who nit-pick and belittle while walking apart from the Spirit of God. Jesus did this very kind of offending with intentionality and regularity.”
