Part of any job is to evaluate. At least it is if you care about improving.
I spend quite a bit of time critiquing how our services can be better, how to tighten transitions, how to eliminate anything that distracts from worship. Unfortunately I find it carries over into everything.
I constantly catch myself making comments about how to improve things around me and it sometimes annoys even me, I can't image how tired those around me are of it.
Is it possible just to accept things as they are? Can I ever enjoy less then perfect? Should I ?
In many cases someone who is overly critical is often most critical of the very things that are weaknesses in themselves. Ouch!
I don't want to be known as someone who is critical. I'm so thankful for all that I have, for our family, for our jobs, for our ministry.
Are you critical? Hard to please?
My prayer is that my spirit is one of peace and support and kindness to all those around me... my prayer is to be like Him.
