    Rosie, thank you for your words of wisdom. We all want to hear feedback about ourselves, but only if it’s all praises, or at least something that doesn’t hurt too much. Taking the time to pray and consider the truth of the matter before reacting is hard. This article came at a perfect time for me, as performance evaluations at my business are getting started. Since I have to evaluate others, your reminder that Christ cares for me, yet knows all my faults, shows me how I can approach not only how I receive criticism, but how I should give it- with care and humility and with the intention of fostering peace. A reading of the Romans passage before each meeting is going to be my new practice!
