Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Inspiration Station For All In Need This Morning

Be Open to Correction

“In vain I punished your people; they did not respond to correction.

Your sword has devoured your prophets like a ravening lion. Jeremiah 2:30


How do you respond to correction? By taking offence? By interpreting it as rejection? By getting defensive? By shooting the bearer of bad news and making sure they never get to you again? By keeping score and saying, ‘In comparison to what I’ve accomplished in life, you’ve done nothing’? By giving in to self-pity and thinking how hard your life is because people don’t understand or appreciate you? We need people who’ll be honest with us. Why? Because we’re too easily blinded by our egos! When God sends somebody to correct you, it’s because He wants what’s best for you. His willingness to correct you actually demonstrates how much He cares for you. ‘If you are not disciplined…you are illegitimate children and not true sons…’ (Hebrews 12:8). So check your spiritual birth certificate! People who are open to correction generally exhibit these four qualities: 1) Vulnerability. When they’re wrong they’re capable of admitting it—even before they’re confronted. 2) Teachability. They’re willing to hear, quick to learn, and always open to counsel. 3) Availability. They don’t try to avoid you. 4) Honesty. They are committed to the truth, regardless of how much it hurts. You say, ‘That’s a high standard.’ You’re right! It’s a standard pride resists and fragile egos run from. There’s something in each of us that would rather look good than be good. So when God sends people into your life who love you enough to be straight with you—be open to them. Your personal growth and success depend on it.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me accept correction and see it as a good thing that You send my way because You love me.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
