‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭11-12‬ NLT
“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.”

No one likes to be corrected. I sure don’t. No one likes to be told he is wrong. I sure don’t. I think you all are the same. We get defensive and we deny our failures instead of facing them and making changes. The Lord is just like your Mommy and Daddy. He loves you too much to let you go on making mistakes and walking in the wrong path. He will correct you. He will discipline you. He will chasten you. Not because He is mad at you but because He loves you. He wants you to learn and grow and walk in His ways. Being corrected, while not enjoyable, is healthy. Have you been corrected by God lately? Thank Him for it. It is proof of His delight in you!
