Your biggest critics are usually only a minority. And most of them who are blessed with your ministry are those that remain silent.
The critical few seem to overpower you because they are loud and more vocal. And even though their opinions are not supported by the majority, it’s not often you see the silent (and supportive) majority voice out.
Therefore many leaders live under the assumption that everyone else feels that way. Some even quit, leaving the silent (and the needy) majority starving.
Let me try to sum this up in one line, “Before you listen to what man has to say, pay attention to what God is saying.” [ClickToTweet]
