• Ecclesiastes 7:5
    It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise
    Than for a man to hear the song of fools.

     
  • Proverbs 9:7-9
    “ He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself,
    And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself.
    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.

     
  • Romans 8:7
    Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
     
  • Proverbs 11:2
    When pride comes, then comes shame;
    But with the humble is wisdom.

     
  • 2 Corinthians 7:10
    For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.
