All of us need to be corrected at times. If we will accept them, correction, re-direction, and advice are tools that can help us to grow and change. Our attitude toward correction makes all the difference. Humble hearts and minds are essential: acknowledging that we are not God, that we have not arrived at perfection, that learning is a lifelong journey. How do you receive correction in your life?
Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise. Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.—Proverbs 15:31-32
Prayer: Father, I need Your correction so that I can continue to become like Jesus. Stir my desire to be in Scripture. Change me as I reflect on Your Word. I know that sometimes You send others to correct me. Help me to have an open heart and mind. Help me to hear Your correction, however You send it. Don’t leave me like I am. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
