Anyone who is making an impact is going to draw fire. It’s written in the bloodstream of the universe. An oft-repeated platitude is, “If you’re flying over the target, you’re going to catch flack.”

Or as Elbert Hubbart stated, “To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”

If you are someone who is putting (or will one day put) your hand to the plow of God’s work, you will invite criticism. And the more valuable your contribution is to the kingdom of God, the more severe the criticism will be. – Frank Viola (from, Three Kinds of Critics & How to Respond to Them)
