Correction is an important part of our growth as Christians. From the day we become saved, we have things in our lives that need to be worked on and improved. God is the one who helps us through this process, mostly by correcting us of our erroneous ways. God takes delight in those who take correction because it shows that they are willing to follow His guidance in their lives. A major part of loving God is being obedient; taking correction is a part of that obedience.
And we pray:
Dear God, I pray that I will always be someone who takes correction well. May I never become proud and think that I am above improving my ways. I do not desire to veer into foolishness, Lord. Guide me accordingly, Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
