Learning Vs. Criticizing

November 25th, 2016


The better you get at anything, the worse everyone else looks.

But that’s not the point of learning. We can all learn from those who are more advanced than us, but as we grow in knowledge, I think God takes extra interest in us growing in humility, too.

Learning, stretching, growing, improving… as Christians, these are words that should bring glory to God. That’s the ultimate end of our lives, anyway, and should be our main goal.

As soon as we cross over into lifting our selves up higher than “that church” or “those people” or “that choir” or “that singer” or ANYTHING, for that matter (singing, knitting, house size, clothing…), we cross into pride.

Pride leads to comparing and criticizing.

Sure, God desires excellence in church music, but not when the worshiper is so proud of himself that he sees everyone else as buffoons. Usually (okay… always), God is after the heart.

Learn all you can about choir, about singing and about excellence. But take care to notice in your own spirit when you get nit-picky over a song or have the “they do it better this way” attitude.
