Our culture is convinced that our greatest need is praise.
But Scripture doesn't agree:
- Proverbs 15:31: If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise.
- Proverbs 25:12: Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
- 2 Timothy 3:16-17: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
