I’ve been stupid.
“Anyone who loves learning accepts correction, but a person who hates being corrected is stupid.” – Proverb 12:1
I can’t seem to help it sometimes. Still, in those times, I am so grateful for a God who loves me through it.
“The LORD corrects those he loves,
just as parents correct the child they delight in.” – Proverbs 3:12
“I correct and punish those whom I love. So be eager to do right, and change your hearts and lives.” – Revelation 3:19
I am eager.
Doing it wrong means, at least, attempting it. Who cares if you look stupid when you know God will come to your rescue.
I had a project at work where I thought I was helping and I ended up breaking a system and taking nearly two weeks to get it operational again.
I felt stupid and had to work out in front of everyone to get it fixed.
The Lord’s correction, aka love, made it worth it.
Our staff was also incredibly gracious. 😉
