Silencing your critics – Part 2

To build on what was said on yesterday’s post, I believe that one of the surest ways to silence your critics is not with words.  It’s not “telling them the truth” so they will believe you or even like you.  In fact, if you go there you will most likely end up in a war of words.  That is usually never a great reflection of Christ.

Instead, I believe one of the greatest ways to silence your critics is with fruit.  (No, I’m not talking about sending them a fruit basket!)  In other words, prove them wrong by the fruit of your life or ministry.

In Matthew 7, Jesus was talking in his Sermon on the Mount about false prophets, people in the church that look religious but really are lost.  Many of the false prophets work hard to slander and destroy that which God is doing.  You could say they will be very critical of those who are truly serving God.  Jesus said “by their fruit you will recognize them…every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit”. (See Matthew 7:15-20)

If what you are doing is truly inspired by God and done with the right motives, I believe God will bless it.  The fruit or results of your life and ministry will speak for you.

It might be hard to stay quiet and allow the fruit of your life to speak because you’ll naturally want to defend your name.  But in the end, results speak louder than words.

Bear good fruit and you will silence your critics.
