Lately, I was thinking of a old story told to me when I was a kid
There was a man who was travelling with his son. And a heavy laden
donkey. They were going on a long trip. As the trip was long and tiring.
They both decided to mount on the donkey.  So, they entered a town.
In that town, people was commenting “Why are they tormenting the donkey?”
So the father decided to get down from the donkey. He left his son there because he is a boy.
Yet the people continue to complain that the donkey was being bullied. Hence the son also went down to walk. As they pass by another house, its inhabitants complained.  “What a overworked donkey, your owner must be a bully”. Finally, because of the comments, the owner started to carry the goods on his back. Just before they reach the end of town, another complained “This poor donkey looks weak” hence now the son is made to carry the donkey behind his back, while his dad carried the goods. And the journeyed like this to the destination.

If we have to explain to everyone everything, we are wasting time. So sometimes perhaps the better thing to do is to just ignore the comments and be your own judge.
Lately, I also received a comment in which they say, if more than one person tells u the same thing, isn’t it so that they are right?
How often was the majority ever right? Just think about it.

1. Out of the 12 Spies into Canaan, Only 2 (Joshua and Caleb)believe that they can conquer Canaan
2. Gideon led an army of 300 against entire army of Midianites
3. Samson killed a thousand man alone using a Jawbone of a donkey
4. Only David (out of the entire camp of Israel) decided to stand against Goliath,
5. There is only 1 Elijah verses 450 Prophets of Baal, and 400 Prophets of Asherah
6. Among the people who comforted Job, Only Elihu fully understands the reason behind Jobs suffering, that is (Elihu Vs Job, Eliphaz, Bilad and Zophar )
7. Only Hananiah, Mishael & Azariah (AKA Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego) defied the king when made to worship the golden image (What happened to the rest of the Jews?)
8. There are only 12 Apostles verses the entire Sanhedrin
9. What is the number of Christians compared to the numbers that are not?

But what is the real difference that matters here. Whether if we compare what we have done the will of God, and whether we have successfully became the witness of God.  Sometimes we should just leave God to be the judge,  So let us not spend too much time commenting, but rather encouraging.
