Have you ever heard anyone tell you to ‘consider the source’? This is meant to make you feel better about criticism from those who are not qualified to give it. This may make you feel better, but it is an invitation to judgment. You can consider criticism on its own merits. If it is valid, receive it. If it is not, reject it. Criticism can be given with destructive intent, but it can also be given in love and with redemptive purpose. Do you find this type easier to take? Other people feel the same way. Let the corrective suggestions you give be of this type, and you will not be inviting others to say ‘consider the source’ about you.
