Proverbs 15:31-32 reminds us of the self-destructive nature of those who disregard discipline. The ancient words sound as if they could have been written today. Pride still plagues us, does it not? We, like people throughout the ages, tend to think we have to act as if we have it all together. But when things go wrong, it is humility—not pride—that enables us to acknowledge our need for life-giving correction. Will you receive the correction God longs to give you? What is He saying to you as you wait before Him?
Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise. Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding. – Proverbs 15:31-32
Prayer: Lord, open my heart and my ears to Your voice, Your correction. I don’t want pride to lead me to destruction. Teach me to desire the life and wisdom and understanding that Your correction brings. In Jesus’ name, amen.
