Love Your Critics…He who heeds instruction and correction is not only himself in the way of life but also is a way of life for others.  Proverbs 10:17.  Love your critics.  Appreciate people’s correction.  Appreciate God’s correction also. Proverbs 3:12 says, “For whom the Lord loves He corrects.”
Self-discipline is the mark of maturity.  If you don’t have control of yourself in a certain area, you are undisciplined.  In that area you are not mature.  If you want to be more mature, then you must be disciplined.
Everyone has weaknesses: give thanks to God if you discover one of yours today, and trust Him to be strong in that area in your behalf.
