Hungry for Feedback

Hungry for Feedback

Feedback. It can be encouraging or intimidating, depending on how it is given, and how we are wired to receive it. When we operate out of pride and fear, we have ears only for positive feedback. Even if we want to lead better, live better, follow God more closely, we aren’t open to hearing ways that we could improve. Are you as hungry for feedback as you are for affirmation and praise? Cultivate relationships with trusted friends, co-workers, mentors, and God, and ask for feedback to help you lead like Jesus.

Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults; whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse. Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise and they will love you. Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.—Proverbs 9:7-9

Prayer: God, open our ears to hear feedback from You and trusted truth-tellers, so that we increasingly live and lead like Jesus. In His name we pray, amen.
