Nourishment: Constructive Criticism

If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise” (Proverbs 15:31 NLT).

No one wants to hear criticism; however, in order to grow in God’s grace we need to be receptive of God’s constructive criticism given to us through inner spirit (Holy Spirit) and others.

Constructive thinking is basically a way of thinking constructively about your world and environment. So instead of reacting to these events, you choose to interpret and then respond to them in ways that will support your growth and development and minimize friction with the external environment.
