In any event, keep a close check on yourself. And don’t worry too much about what the critics will say. I Timothy 5:23a (TM)
The cool thing about being in the Word on a regular basis (ala chapter-a-day) is that God can give you just what you need when you need it. As a leader (in family, in business, in community) I’ve been struggling with this whole ‘don’t worry what the critics will say.’ I’m one of those people blessed/cursed with a personality that likes to please people. The reality is that effective leaders don’t please everyone. In fact, sometimes leaders don’t please anyone even when they are doing exactly the thing that needs to be done.
I had just been talking about my struggle in this area with my friend Kevin yesterday. Paul’s encouragement to Timothy goes straight to my heart today. It’s just what the Great Physician ordered.
