The Need for Correction

While reading Kemper’s new book, I begin reflecting on the successes and failures throughout my life. I find that the success was enduring when I paid attention to the wisdom from Above. The one thing I encounter when reading a work like this is that it requires me to slow down and contemplate each statement. Wisdom is the ability to receive correction and instruction. Rarely do I get instruction without the correction aspect.
Often we want Our Heavenly Father to fix somebody else other than the man in the mirror. Focus on the man in the mirror and quit trying to control others and all will work out in the end.
Those who are unwilling to change are destined to make the same mistakes over and over. They then wonder why they are in a cycle of judgment.
It would be better to “do nothing” than to repeat the same failure again hoping for a different outcome. In the meantime you end up losing time and other resources.

Proverbs 1:23 (KJV) Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

As Kemper’s reminds us, turning is repenting. Is The Spirit “poured” out on you? As for me I will continue my study, expecting a greater flow!
