In Proverbs 9:8, God says
“A scoffer who is rebuked will only hate you;
the wise, when rebuked, will love you”
In that light, consider what David Murray writes:
There is one characteristic that separates the successful from the unsuccessful in every walk of life: teachability.
Those who are teachable, and remain so, usually succeed. The unteachable usually fail. I’ve seen that in business, I’ve seen it in the ministry, I’ve seen it among students, and I’ve seen it in my children.
