Recently I’ve been helping a friend with a project of his.
He’s appreciated my help, and praised me for what I’ve passed on to him.
But the truth is… he’s done the hard work.
Because he’s doing the creating, and I’m just doing the critiquing…
And it’s always easier to critique than create.
(Which is, by the way, why the world has far more critics than creators.)
Sure… there’s a place for offering criticism.
Especially if asked…
… Or if you’re called to be a movie critic, or something like that…
We’re created in God’s image…
And God made us to be co-creators with Him, not co-critiquers!
So make sure your emphasis is on creating rather than critiquing.
And be wary of those who would rather critique you than help you create.
