Dogs Only Bark at Moving Cars
By David Chadwick
Dad always encouraged me to be a dreamer. He adjured me to try to do something so big only God could do it. That way, God received all the glory.
My dad knew that without a vision, God’s people perish (Proverbs 29:18).
What I didn’t realize was that when someone chases a dream, critics arise from everywhere. They try to squelch, diminish, and prevent the dream from occurring.
I asked my dad how to handle these negative people. “Son,” he responded, “always remember that dogs only bark at moving cars.”
Criticism only happens when you try to accomplish something. Then you either cease pursuing your dream, or you keep moving forward.
Dad knew that the right response is to keep moving forward and pursue your dream.
And to realize that dogs only bark at moving cars.
