Hello fellow young people, you are welcome to this great year. Do you find it difficult to accept correction from your parents, elders, friends then this article will help you, first let me define correction: It means a substitution for an error or mistake. (2) Correction can also be seen as a punishment that is intended to rehabilitate an offender. Some people find it difficult to accept correction, they offense when corrected because they feel they are doing the right thing and know it all. A person who dismisses correction is like a pilot who ignores direction from control tower, the result can be disastrous, so when someone gives you correction, that person is basically telling you that you are doing something wrong.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CORRECTION
1) Everyone needs correction¬- we stumble and make mistakes many times. There’s nothing shameful about needing correction when you do something wrong. James 3:2 “for we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body”.
2) Being corrected doesn’t mean you are a failure- Proverbs 3:12 “For whom the Lord loves he corrects, just as father the son in whom he delights”. When people correct you don’t see yourself as a failure rather try to focus on how difficult it must be for them to do it and loving it is for them to give you advice.
3) Correction makes you become a better person. Proverb 8:33 “Hear instruction and be wise, and don’t disdain it” correction is essential for growth. It gives you insight into how you are perceived by others and helps you to curb negative traits that you may not even know you developed.
