Miriam criticized Moses someone in leadership. God put her in isolation with the leprosy for 7 days. God showed me how he feels towards those who criticize people in Leadership.
I guess this applys whether it’s our pastor, husband, fiance, politician, boss, anyone that’s trying to be a leader. People in leadership positions are not always open to criticism . The Bible says in Ephesians 4:29 Be careful what comes out of your mouth make sure it’s going to bless the one that hears .
Leaders get a lot of unsolicited criticism. I think God wants us to wait till they ask for the criticism and make it constructive not destructive. Which means you need the wisdom to know where the person is and whether or not they are able to receive the criticism. If not to give it would not be fruitful and would be discouraging and not what God would want. Constructive criticism has nothing to do with the criticism itself, but the receiver and whether or not they are able to receive it.
Many relationships are broken on this one issue alone. when in doubt ….pray for the person. Let God show them through the power of the spirit. He knows their heart and yours too.
Try to work on yourself to be able to receive more criticism in a way that grows and does not hurt or discourage you.
Let God grace rule over your heart and mouth.
I write this as much for myself as for you my beloved sisters from another mister.
