Don't Get Mad At Rebuke

See 2 Chronicles 26.

v16

But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to [his] destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
This man stopped seeking the Lord, and instead, he went to do something that was sin. Maybe he even thought that the Lord would honor him for it. It would have been a good thing to do, except it wasn't for him.

Even when we've sought the Lord before, and the Lord has made us prosper, even when we're strong, sin will still lead to destruction.

When people come to point out sin that we're doing, and tell us it's wrong, we shouldn't get mad at them.
