Proverbs 9:8-9

So don’t bother rebuking mockers; they will only hate you. But the wise, when rebuked, will love you all the more.  Teach the wise and they will be wiser.  Teach the righteous, and they will learn more.”  

Insight: It can be hard at times to receive correction or a rebuke from someone, or to receive instruction on something that we think we already know what there is to know.  But there is a blessing and even greater wisdom to be gained when we have a posture of learning and are willing to be teachable.  Also, admitting our faults and being willing to change or adjust what we are doing will allow us to continue growing into the person God desires us to be. 

Prayer: Lord, today I ask you to help me to be teachable and moldable and bring correction in any area of my life that doesn’t line up with your will for me.  I ask for your wisdom to fill my heart and mind and to push aside any thoughts that would lead me away from you.
