Starting Your Day Right/ Devotions for Each Morning of the Year
Love your critics. Appreciate people’s correction. Appreciate God’s correction also. Proverbs 3:12 says, “For whom the Lord loves He corrects.”
Self-discipline is the mark of maturity. If you don’t have control of yourself in a certain area, you are undisciplined. In that area you are not mature. If you want to be a mature Christian, then you must be disciplined.
If you want to be free to truly enjoy your life, you must face the truth. You cannot be free if you make excuses for any area of weakness that God has pointed out to you. Everyone has weaknesses: give thanks to God if you discover one of yours today, and trust Him to be strong in that area in your behalf.
He who heeds instruction and correction is [not only himself] in the way of life [but also] is a way of life for others. Proverbs 10:17
