2 Samuel 16; Psalm 3
How can we respond to criticism that’s unfair and even abusive?
When it happened to David, his friend suggested striking back. But David’s response was to place the critic in God’s hands, a model from which we may learn. David sang in Psalm 3: “But Thou, O Lord, are a shield about me…” As it turned out, God vindicated David through providential circumstances and condemned the critic through the same.
