Are you stupid?

DAILY BIBLE READING:

Deuteronomy 7:1-8:20
Luke 7:36-8:3
Psalm 69:1-18
Proverbs 12:1

BIBLE VERSE(S) FOR TODAY:

Proverbs 12:1 (CSB) “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but one who hates correction is stupid.”

REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

While we will agree with the truth of this Proverb, we realize all too well that getting disciplined or corrected isn’t pleasant. We don’t like it when someone else sees one of our weaknesses and points it out.

That’s our sinful heart, pure and simple. It’s pride.

As difficult as it is to receive discipline and correction, the only way we can learn and grow to be what we need to be is to have folks who are unafraid to tell us the honest truth. They tell us what they see and they love us enough to confront us. At least then we will know what areas to work on.

We need people that will be honest with us. And we need humble hearts to receive the correction.

Are you open to discipline and correction? If so, good for you! If not, according to the Bible, you’re stupid.

So, which one is it?
