I read this verse this morning. Proverbs 13:13  He who scorns instruction will pay for it, but he who respects a command is rewarded.

So much is riding on our willingness to listen. Are we willing to hear the correction that comes our way? Or do we prefer to plug our ears and walk away? Teachableness do we/I have it? Can I listen to everyone? Do I listen to my superiors, my peers, those I lead? And its not just people, right. Ultimately I need to hear God’s correction.

hmm, am I willing?

Few of us really want to be corrected. Its embarrassing. Its hard to take. Its hard to swallow our pride.

Yet here’s the good news if we do listen to correction we will be rewarded. You and I can receive a reward of strong character, godly righteousness. It will be a good thing …if we’re willing to hear.
