Dear Child, today we’ll be learning about corrections and instructions. As children, you know you don’t know everything. You still need the help of adults around you to give you instructions and correct you when you need it.
Corrections won’t always go on your good side, that’s because you will be scolded when need be.
As a child, taking instructions is necessary. You always need someone to guide and direct you so you don’t hurt yourself or make grievous mistakes
See what the bible says;
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. –Proverbs 9: 8-9(KJV)
When a wise man is rebuked (corrected), he will love the person that corrects him more. Why is this? It’s because he loves to be corrected and he or she has realized that it’s only people who love you and want the best for you that will correct you.
You also should love to be corrected, regardless of how you feel after you have been rebuked.
When your parents and adults around you correct you, it’s not because they hate you, it’s because they love you and want you to do better.
Another thing this verse says is that, when instruction is given to a wise person, he or she becomes wiser.
It’s interesting, isn’t it? It’s true because a wise child will follow every instruction given to him or her. This will inevitably make the child wiser because you do what you are told to do and you learn from it.
Do you want to be wiser, smarter and better at what you do? Then what you need to do is accept every correction and follow every instruction you are given, and you will see a great transformation in what you do and how you do it.
May God help you to take corrections.
Lord, help me to listen when I am corrected.
Put up the right attitude whenever you are corrected.
I love correction.
