Proverbs 9 - Key


Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

Often when people correct or criticize somebody, they also have a problem at the same time, or a problem in the way they're finding fault.

When that happens to me, it's tempting for me to respond unlovingly.

That's what a scorner does, but I should be a wise man instead. Even if my reprover has problems too, I can humbly examine myself and learn something from it that I can do better.


Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.

I'll be teachable.
