Listening to Correction

October 14, 2018 | Wes McAdams

Passage: Proverbs 15:32

Everyone wants to grow, mature, be wise, and be spiritual; but no one wants to be corrected or told when they are doing something wrong. In order to grow into the people God wants us to be, we have to develop a willingness to listen to correction.

Series Information

The book of Proverbs teaches that if you live an upright, righteous, and wise life, things tend to work out well for you. So it is very easy to think the proverbs are simply teaching us to live well because it is “practical” to do so. But from the beginning to the end, the message is that we should live well because it is pleasing to the Lord. The fear of the Lord must be the driving factor behind wise living.
