What Kind of Man are You?

April 9, 2016

Proverbs 9:8-9

8 Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;
Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.




What kind of man are you?

Are you correctable? Do you allow those that are above you in authority or leadership to correct your faults, and shortcomings? Or are you quick to make an excuse, or have an answer? Do you get offended when you are corrected? This type of man, in Proverbs is referred to as a scoffer, a wicked man, and a fool.

When corrected are you hurt, but grateful. Do you want to improve in your weaknesses, even if it hurts? Have you been corrected and taken that correction and applied it for good? Not to prove a point, not in bitterness, but because it was true? That type of man is wise, just, and prudent in the Proverbs.

Lets all seek to be wise men. Ask God daily to humble your hearts. To remove all pride and give you the mind of Christ. To have a servants mindset in all things, to see others better than yourselves. These are great first steps.
