Learn to accept helpful criticism.
To be counted among the wise, you must learn to accept helpful criticism.
Greetings in the blessed name of Lord Jesus Christ!
It is a well known fact that the environment in which we live either makes or breaks us. Most importantly when we are surrounded by wise people, we definitely derive lot many good and great things from them. Certainly we are more blessed if we are in the company of wise believers. Because we get to hear and learn the right things for living a godly life. Also when we make mistakes, they will give a fair and honest critique of our work. Even more, if we give ear to their helpful criticism and good counsel then we are bound to go in the right direction of life. Rather than heeding to the righteous critique, if we despise then it is foolishness. Yes, only fools hate wisdom and avoid the company of wise men.
So brethren, despise not helpful criticism but seek wisdom. Ask God for wisdom for He gives generously and also enjoys giving to everyone (James 1:5). Therefore, let us live wisely, a life in righteousness and in good counsel. In Jesus matchless name let us submit ourselves to the living God. Amen.
