Appreciate Correction by Joyce Meyer - August 16, 2014
Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful
and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God’s Word and life’s experiences], for the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, and the profit of it better than fine gold. —Proverbs 3:13–14
Ask God to reveal areas in which you need to apply self-control.
You can even enjoy the journey to becoming all that He has in
mind for you to be, if you learn to appreciate godly correction from others. Remember, God loves you just the way you are, but He corrects those He loves (See Proverbs 3:12).
Only mature Christians enjoy the meat of God’s Word, and He has much to share with His grown-up sons and daughters. There will always be more to learn, so don’t make excuses for your weak points. Accepting the truth will set you free (See John 8:32), and God will give you strength to overcome in those areas in which you are weak.
