We can learn from Nehemiah not to be distracted by
criticism of our work. When we’re criticized or mocked,
instead of responding to our critics out of hurt or anger,
we can prayerfully ask God to defend us from
discouragement so we can continue with a whole heart.
- Kirsten Holmberg
Help me to evaluate the good and bad in the criticism,
to trust You, and to continue in my work wholeheartedly.
In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
