Bible Verses about Correction, Accepting
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
“ 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.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
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.
