Harsh criticism—whether through hurtful words or disapproving gestures—can cause emotional pain, strain relationships, and stunt personal growth. In this 96-page book, June Hunt shows how to respond, heal, and stop the cycle of criticism with the healing balm of the Word of God.
Is there someone in your life who has been critical of you? We have all been wounded by hurtful words of others - whether it's the constant nagging of a spouse, an overly critical friend, or a fault-finding parent. At the root of a critical spirit often lie insecurities and unmet needs. For many, critical attitudes are "caught" from a home life where parents modeled this destructive behavior. Whether you feel constantly beat up by the biting words of others or whether you are personally struggling with an overly critical attitude, find out how to respond to harsh criticism and how to cultivate a caring spirit with this easy-to-understand book by June Hunt.
Discover how to—
Use this encouraging book as quick-reference or as a Bible study. Perfect for those who have been scared by the verbal criticism of others and for those who struggle with being overly critical.
June Hunt starts this minibook with a definitions section where she explains what a "critical spirit" is and its relationship to verbal and emotional abuse. She covers key characteristics, such as constant nagging, harsh judgment, unreasonable strict standards, excessive negative attitudes, and more. In this section, she explains:
Using the critical rebukes of Job's friends as models (Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar), June Hunt explains the 9 key differences between a caring and critical spirit. As you dig deeper into Job's story, you'll see common forms of criticism and find out how to know when a relationship is giving off unhealthy warning signs.
This minibook will shed light on what often causes people to develop a critical spirit. A critical spirit doesn't just appear out of nowhere—it is created and nurtured by past negative experiences. One of the most common causes of a critical spirit is growing up in a home where criticism was a constant, where parents modeled a critical spirit before their children.
A critical spirit is often developed under the pressure of continual criticism—from unanticipated anger to unwarranted attacks. June Hunt shares not only what these causes are, but shares how to heal from these childhood wounds.
The last section titled "Steps to Solution" gives you practical advice on how to confront and cope with overly critical people. It also explains how to break the cycle of criticism by developing a caring spirit.
