Godly Correction

Sometimes the hardest thing for me to do is accept correction. When I was younger, I didn’t like admitting I was wrong. Especially if I had to admit that in front of others. Can you relate to feeling that way? Correction isn’t something we love. However, if you’re corrected by your manager, parents, teachers, or pastors, it’s usually good for you, and it helps you grow. To become wise and mature, it’s good to learn to accept constructive correction. 

Did you know that there is wisdom in accepting correction and advice from people who are around us that are wise? Often, directors, pastors, parents, and teachers in our lives have gone through things that are like what we face. Their advice is good when it’s Biblical because they normally have more life experience and wisdom than we do. 

If we will be open to accepting Godly advice and correction from others, it can help us grow, and make us wise. 

Today, if you struggle with accepting correction, ask God to help you. He will show you strategies that will help you to take corrections better. God wants good things for your life, just know that most of the people that gently correct you in your life love you, and want what’s best for you. Don’t be too proud to accept correction and learn from your mistakes. 

Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end, you will be counted among the wise. – Proverbs 19:20 (NIV) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, I know I have many sins. Father, I ask that you forgive me, and also show me ways to correct my actions. Please give me correction in your Word and through wise people in my life. I want the wisdom that comes from Godly correction. In Jesus name Amen.
