"He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, and he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself. Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, reprove a wise man and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." Proverbs 8:7-10
My goal is to have wisdom. Part of being a wise person is being willing to listen to reproof and instruction. I hope that I will learn to always do that happily.
Do you struggle to listen to criticism or reproof?
