Why Correct?

Why we need correction? Will the world be a good place without it?

I’m going to use this illustration: Imagine you are baking a cake, or you are building a table. But the outcome of the cake is not what you expect, and the table has so many holes and gaps. That will not happen if there’s someone who will say to you, “Teka, sobra ka sa asukal. Bawasan mo.” or “Di tama yung mga dimensions mo. Ulitin mo ule.

The same thing in our life, we need people who will correct us in most of the aspects of life. Who will going to tell you if you are making a wrong decision if there’s no people who will tell you that it will harm you. Even me, I’m experiencing a lot of corrections: From my blogging to the major decisions in my life. But all of those are worth it.

The Word of God greatly stressed correction, especially in the Book of Proverbs. That means we really need corrections in our lives. But why? Simple, for us to make a right decision that we can use in our life. If you do not heed to the corrections, watch out! Because that’s the start of pride crawling in your life. And you must be cautious with that, because your pride will lead you to your own destruction. In other words, You will be the reason of your own demise if you do not heed corrections.

And what is the great instrument of correction? It’s the Word of God:

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

– 2 Timothy 3:16

And what will happen to us if we heed corrections from God:

so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

– 2 Timothy 3:17

Why we need correction? For us to be equipped for life.


About Kevin Reyes

Once a piece of thrash that was always being ridiculed, getting fooled, always getting bullied. But when God found me on that condition, he gave me a new life, a new direction, a new purpose. And I'd like to share my walk and my testimonies to all of you so that you might experience also God's love.
