There is a world of difference between being critical and thinking critically.
A critical person (“being critical”) is someone who is just critical. They live in negative land; gifted at pointing out what is wrong but offering no solutions, help, or hope. (By the way, this is not one of the spiritual gifts, though I’ve met people who I suspect think so.)
Thinking critically is far different.
Thinking critically is seeing life as it truly is but with an attitude of how things could be better.
There are even a few very special critical thinkers that take this to a whole new level—they think, “How can I make it better?”
The ONE THING for today: Be one of those who think and pray–“How can I make things better?”
