STU-P-ID LA!!

"Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but he who hates correction is stupid."
Proverbs 12:1(NIV)
Came across this verse today,
and it really spoke to me....
Hate disipline,
and be labled STUPID,
STUPID lei!!!!
Wow,
well,
I admit,
accepting criticism,
correction,
rebuke
and discipline is a HUGE challenge to me...
In fact i speak not only for me but for my generation as a whole...
We have been a generation that have experienced many good things in life...
Let's just face it,
it's definitely much better than days before,
technology is the one that has brought all that to our doorstep,
take handphone for example,
it used to be a thing only businessmen has,
but now, each person around just cant live without one...
We have become a generation that is INFORMED...
With the WORLD WIDE WEB,
information is at the tip of our fingers....
The convenience and instant comfort our generation obatains,
is I believe the very thing that makes our generation somewhat a bit spoiled and prideful...
From my opinion,
that is the very reason why our generation cant stand being CORRECTED...
We cant STAND people telling us what to do...
WE JUST CANT STAND IT!!!
But is it all good,
let's look at scripture again,
"he who hates correction is STUPID..."
S-T-U-P-I-D...
We all need to learn to accept discipline...
We just NEED to LEARN...
As much as we CANT STAND IT...
To me,
If our generation just CANT STAND IT,
and it is left as that,
our generation will be lost to the EVIL ONE...
He has won,
because of generation does not know submission,
only rebellion....
It is a scary thought for the future of our generation...
(Please note that i am talking to myself)...
To parents, teachers, pastors, advisors, mentors, leaders, elders, and older brothers and sisters...
On behalf of my generation,
I want to thank you for loving us by correcting us,
and i hope you wont stop there,
but i hope you guys would learn to correct like what the bible says,
in love and gentleness...
We promise we are working at it to listen to you guys...
And to my dear generation,
Yes,
Am talking to you:P...
Let's learn together,
let's know that when any of these older guys come along,
no matter how fierce or scary,
let's understand it is because they love us,
and let's learn to ACCEPT CORRECTION...
And between friends and accountabilities,
let's also learn to correct one another in love,
for isnt that what friends are for?
Let's RISE UP to not be CALLED STUPID!!
