And let’s face it, people can be brutal. Especially when something as emotive as music in church is involved! And you’ll find they are sometimes more than happy to criticise you for the craziest things, like how loud the music was or somebody else having a guitar out of tune. If you are standing up and seeking to lead people into the presence of God, the devil is going to use every way he can to attack you! That’s why this podcast on how to take criticism in a godly, honourable and humble way is going to be so valuable for you!

Coping with criticism of your worship leading is never going to be fun, but it is something that we all face, sometimes more often than we want to think about, right?
It’s a fact that no one likes to be criticised. You don’t like it, and neither do I, and I don’t know many people running around saying joyfully, ” I love being criticised!” But when you face criticism of your worship leading, and you will, then you need to establish who is doing the criticising, why or what their agenda is, and is it valid. Then you must ask the Lord how to respond in a godly and God honouring way.
OK, this all sounds good in theory, but how in the world do you do this when the criticism tore your heart to pieces?
Criticism of Your Worship Leading is Painful, but Often Powerful
Criticism of your worship leading is always going to hurt, especially if you’re a little sensitive like me (that’s not a joke, by the way, I really do feel i when others criticise me). Yet I have learned to respond in the right way, examine the validity of the critique, and have also learned that very often the one with the bigger problem is the one delivering the criticism, not me.
Well this podcast is for everyone who has been hurt but criticism, just or unjust, and we will show you how to not only cope but also use criticism to improve your worship leading…
And by the way, if you want to minimise criticism, there are some really simple things you can do which can decrease bad reports of your worship leading.
