Reproof, Correction, and Rebuke

We all have blind spots, sin habits, and addictions in our life. They are extremely hard to get victory over, and most people just live with them creating so much heart ache in their life and relationships because of it.

The best way to get victory over entrenched sin habits and blind spots is to have good people in your life who will hold you accountable and reprove you for your lifestyle and decisions. In fact those who are humble enough to receive correction from wise people in their life will grow amazingly fast.

The problem is that most people are to proud, defensive, stupid to receive any kind of advice, correction or reproof, so they grow very little in character most of their adult life. The Bible has a word for those people.

Proverbs 15:5 he who regards reproof is sensible.

Proverbs 1:25 And you neglected all my counsel and did not want my reproof;

Proverbs 1:30 They would not accept my counsel, hey spurned all my reproof.

Proverbs 5:12 And you say, “How I have hated instruction! and my heart spurned reproof!

Proverbs 10:17 He is on the path of life who heeds instruction, but he who ignores reproof goes astray.

Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.

Proverbs 15:31-32 He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise. He who neglects discipline despises himself,
but he who listens to reproof acquires understanding.
