My personal Bible verse for 2010 is Proverbs 12:1. Here Solomon, through inspired wisdom states, “Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.” Mistaking instruction for unfair criticism or nit-picking will result in a lack of growth in knowledge and maturing as a Christian. Perhaps the biggest culprit of this phenomena is our pride. We are warned time and time again about pride and told to humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord.
I am posting this verse in a highly visible place to remind myself to be humble and take correction.
