Receiving Correction

Receiving Correction
January 29
Proverbs 29:1
A man who hardens his neck after much reproof
will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.

Nabal and Ahab these are the names
of men who continually played the same games
I’m sure they had chances but all were wasted away
and because of no change destruction came in one day

Saying you’re sorry saying you’re wrong really is a good thing
when ;you respond to another’s correction it’s enough to make ‘em sing
but when you harden your heart and waste another’s breath
you do yourself no favor but rather wish for your own death

When you stood on the hill of death and sin
you were warned again and again
come down before it gets too late
and in the end you suffer a much worse fate

Receiving correction is a humbling occasion
but you could request no better persuasion
there can really be no better plan trying
for often it’s the difference between living and dying
