One of the most difficult things to handle as a leader is when those closest to you complain to you. God takes complaints about leaders seriously because no one becomes a leader without His permission (1Sam 8:7).
It is not easy; however, we should expect criticism and handle it as God desires (Ecc 7:21-22). Read Romans 8:33-34 and Matthew 5:44. What do these passages suggests we do to handle criticism against us.
