Here's To Ya Brother Kinkade

A few weeks ago the Christian world was shocked by the accidental death via drugs and alcohol of Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light. I love his work. On the 8th of May the coronerís report was released to the media. Here is a note from the news article: "Patrick Kinkade said his brother had been burdened in recent years by a separation from his wife, financial troubles and the low opinion of his work by critics."

I am willing to state my opinion that of all the problems that were driving Thomas the most painful was the continual attack of critics. I read the names of some of his critics and I have never heard of them. And the "low opinion of his work by critics."

Whatever part of God's work He entrusts to you, be sure the critics will abound. David mentions critics often and I especially like his statement in Psalms 140:3 "They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah."

I have often been strengthened by the statement of President Harry Truman who said in dealing with critics, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." We must learn that as we go about doing worthwhile things, the critics will come out of the woodwork. Keep on serving.

"If you have the smile of God what does it matter if you have the frown of men." Leonard Ravenhill
