If you stop listening to correction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge.
Oh, how we get ourselves in trouble when we stop listening to admonishment!
Does your pride tell you, “I already know that!”??
Don’t let pride stop up your ears from listening to correction. What is better, to listen to correction and change or to ignore it and perish in foolish pride?
Furthermore, Proverbs 3:34 tells us that God himself mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble! Prayer that is heard by God, evidently, must be made by a pray-er who is humble.
Watch out for pride; it truly does go before destruction! (Proverbs 16:18)
