Look at your missionary with a critical eye?

Recently I read a blog post  by a former missionary-in-Japan about judging. About the areas about which people tend to judge missionaries:

"How we spend our time, how we spend our money, and how we raise our children." 

It does help to explain why missionaries are often very careful about what they disclose in prayer letters (like talking about holidays).

You can read it here. She talks about what unconscious assumptions we might have, but also gives some helpful, Biblical ways to respond to our critical hearts. It is both a challenging and helpful post.
