I heard encouragement on my drive to work this morning. When someone criticizes you, it is a natural response to want to respond negatively. The encouragement this morning was instead of responding, we should pray!
- First think about times we have “gotten it wrong” about others, and then take that to the Lord;
- Thank Him for His grace, ask that He give us more grace to give others; and
- Pray for the person who wronged you, asking the Father to fill their heart with more grace.
