Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage
“Whoever stubbornly refuses to accept criticism
will suddenly be destroyed beyond recovery.”
Proverb 29:1 NLT
- It is certainly difficult to be criticized. But, it is necessary for growth. When we refuse to listen…we only mire ourselves more in sin. What does this Proverb tell us will happen if we ignore rebuke?
- Listen to what Jesus Himself says, “’If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive. Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.’” Luke 17:3-4 NLT
- Are you closed off to rebuke? First, check it against God’s word (2 Timothy 3:16) then move forward knowing God is working in your life.
- Is there anything in your life that is destroying you?
Open your mind to growth in Christ. Check it against God’s word & move forward in the power of Christ. Forgiven! I will be praying for you!
