I love correction. Now I need to go repent because I just lied. When I am confronted, my flesh rises up and I tend to go on the defensive. Yet correction is what is needed at times. I need it. You need it. Christ-followers must be teachable, and part of being teachable is learning to receive correction.
So when a brother or sister in Christ (or perhaps even an unbeliever) comes to us to point out something in our character that we are lacking or a wrong we have committed – we need to learn to receive it.
Remember what we learn in Proverbs…
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction, (Proverbs 1:7, ESV)
