Like Gold Jewelry

To one who listens, valid criticism is like a gold earring or other gold jewelry.

~ Proverbs 25:12 [NLT]

Criticism can be tough to swallow.  What if criticism were viewed as a prized possession that’s wrapped with great care, presented with honor, and accepted with gratitude?  The verse above points out that valid criticism only becomes precious to anyone who listens.  When you listen to criticism are you listening for negativity or constructive gold?
