Watching Jesus closely 

The scribes and Pharisees had it in for Jesus, 

“Now it happened on another Sabbath, also, that He entered the synagogue and taught. And a man was there whose right hand was withered. So the scribes and Pharisees watched Him closely, whether He would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against Him” (Luke 6:6-7).

Jesus wanted to help people’s spirits, so He taught. He wanted to help people’s bodies, so He healed them, even if it happened on the Sabbath, but the scribes and Pharisees believed that constituted work, leading them to find something wrong with Jesus. 

Do you seek to help people? If so, someone will find something wrong with what you do. If you need to make corrections, make them, otherwise, do not let the critics get you down, remembering that people criticized even Jesus.
