He is in the way of life who heeds correction, but he who forsakes reproof leads others astray.
We often underestimate the impact that our decisions have on others and choose comfort over character.
Today’s reading tells us that our prideful decisions to dismiss God’s wisdom and discipline will hurt us and everyone in our circle of influence.
We can either be humble enough to share God’s grace with others, or we can choose to ignore His truth and lead ourselves (and others) down a path of destruction.
The choice is yours.
