Correction Hurts

Who likes correction! I don’t, even though most of the time it’s warranted. It’s not that correction is not appreciated—eventually. I just don’t like to be corrected. It hurts. But, God is not like the parents who allow their unruly, disrespectful children free rein as they create havoc wherever they go. God is a loving father who cares about his children and warns and corrects them when they stray. He loves us and doesn’t want us to suffer the consequences of sin. Correction can come from Scripture or sermons but also through unexpected ways. Another person who may be totally unaware may say something that stings. But, we, as the guilty parties, recognize immediately God is talking directly to us. No fun! Thank you, Lord, for your merciful, if uncomfortable, correction.

  1. It really matters where the correction comes from for me. May Gods gentle correction reign in our hearts. Thanks Sheila! On Sat, Nov 13, 2021 at 8:31 AM Briefly Speaking wrote:
