GOD’S CORRECTION IS GOOD

proverbs-3-12-god-corrects-us-gold_1398839561The LORD God Almighty corrects those HE LOVES as a father or parents correct the children in whom they delight says the Bible in Proverbs 3:12. God reveals to HIS Children error by love to point out mistakes to reveal the correct way to change for good. Correction is done by God directly or through Jesus Christ the Eraser to wipe out errors to restart correctly to show a person unaware of a mistake due to lack of knowledge. This helps learn from mistakes to improve lives to please God. By doing so the lives transformed grow in righteousness and improves in faith, active listening skills in obedience to God. The person gains useful information previously unknown before. Hebrews 12:6-11 says the LORD chastens, disciplines, scourges all HE LOVES to receive correction to endure to gain better experience in life. God deals with people as individual, family or on corporate basis as required.proverbs-3-12-god-corrects-us-green_1078636053Correction of Bart Simpson is a classic example of the line writing exercise on the classroom board to highlight point of correction. Years ago, schools gave pupils correction exercise books for rewriting misspelt words. Of course, as children unaware of exact right words intended word teachers point mistake to teach learners to write many times in exercise books to help remember the correct words in future. The brain coordinates hand movements with eyes to record words. Repetition of the words written many times forever registers so etched in minds of pupils to remember better. But along came a contemporary educational theory it constitutes abuse to ask children to use repetition method to write lines for correction so avoidedsimpson-i will use google before asking dumb questions

So spell checker was born so people did not memorize words for rote learning for recall. Computers correct the words obviously misspelt but words like “cap” and “cup”or “hat” and “hut” for example though correct, if not in context can be incorrect. Drinking milk in “cap” does not show on spellchecker so the reader must know word “cup” in the first place to edit it. This affects spelling error not dealt still with by computer in modern times. Therefore it is important to teach correct words in academia for life as a whole. The Bible says if you correct wise people and they become wiser and love you but correct mockers and they hate you. Choose correction carefully at right time in right way to help improve lives. Purpose of correction is not to shame a person in a negative way for vengeance to hurt them. People who love and care about you help with any issues affecting you to deal with it by Godly correction, compassion, support, understanding as God disciplines us.  3

Godly discipline is for good so it is not punishment though unpleasant because one is compelled to conform or comply against own rebellious ideas. Proverbs 9:8 warns not to attempt to correct fools because they are offended so hate you. Adapting to change is uncomfortable so may seem harsh to recipient until they benefit when they correct the error. So Correction requires determination by the teacher to help ‘wise’ to be ‘wiser’ as challenge to one doing correction. Their unpredictable nature, response reaction to correction depends on the persona at receiving end. Element of risk means a teacher helps learners to avoid mistakes to help correct them through a training experience. Criticising a person affects correction as attack on ego or pride may refuse help or reject correction. In the long run, over a period of time, people realise an insolent person’s ignorance is caused by fear of change. So help stop the devices of mistakes damaging them. Lack of Frontal Cortex means those in crises do not know how mistakes can impact lives. Sadly, some learn the hard way by self-destruction that could be avoided if only they listened. proverbs3_11-12Through arguments a stiff neck refuses to take instructions so does not realise the errors done to themselves or to their family. Blinded by error mindset, causes havoc by process of fear rebuff or reject correction so avoid a pointed out error altogether for improvement. The theory that correction discourages children in the early years from learning affects the attitude to correction in general. Left to figure things out for themselves, many people are unaware of their mistakes. So it becomes problems affecting their performance if the person is allowed to be left to their own devices. In terms of future career the person carries on into other areas of life. Anyone who points out errors to them other than own ideas is not well received. Although a trainer from experience knows exactly what they are talking about, so foresees error, the learner does not accept help, refuses correction. Yet correction is specifically for their good, well-being of the whole family or work place, community and world in general.Profitable-for-RebukeIf a stubborn person resists wisdom at all cost to defy authority in the name of freedom to do as they please, they miss out on the Spirit of excellence. Realise boundaries of correction helps to learn better ways to protect them from a long winding road of mistakes. Like prodigal son, God forgives and restores the ways of error to rescue the lost or misdirected by the wrong choices they made. Proper correction helps to avoid, prevent worse case scenarios. A person corrected must be educated to visualise or understand benefits of the correction in advance. So learners must be taught advantages of correction to instill value of flexibility, humility to bring changes in learning methods. Correction is not to inflict pain or suffering but guidance to give correct information to the person taught. The teacher must be patient and tolerant because learners do not immediately see what they teachers know. Important to understand a soft stick bends because it is malleable than a hard dry stick. The concept that learners grow up to correct themselves is not always the wise move. As they continue in set ways without an understanding of the impact of previous years without correction. Many adults get offended when genuine people try to guide them to correct errors. Some explode in anger and rage so take anger on others. This even spills over into the others aspects of life treating anyone’s suggestions in good faith as an attack on their character or personality. 54126707d4518b751f9145ee5d192841

Reprove not a scorner lest he hates you, rebuke a wise man and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man so he will be still wiser, teach a righteous man and he will thank you and apply correction in their lives. Correct fools and they take offence. Do not despise chastening of the LORD God; neither be weary of HIS correction. So accept correction for your own goodAccept correction of God by Grace and wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth and teach you. A personal Bible study as a faithful Child of God is part of growth and maturity in the LORD. Start correction of children as early as possible from 2 years old to correct them in love at their level not by anger. Teach children by pointing out correct manner of behaviour as part of life for all to learn. It is imperative to carefully train a child to get rewards for their good behaviour to help reinforce correction. Follow up with apology and hug so child learns to accept teachers doing well to teach child to accept critique of work performance. Children with trained good sense accept correction and even recognise error by admitting error if unnoticed by teacher. A child can politely point out error to a teacher because all are human, so make mistakes in life. The secret is to get up immediately for good success not to feel disheartened by correction. Correction is good as it builds a person up to thrive.

GOD CORRECTS THOSE HE LOVES

In revelations 3:19 God rebukes and disciplines those He Loves. In Proverbs 3:12 God CORRECTS those HE LOVES. In 2 Timothy 3:16, God’s Word is GOOD for Correction, useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting and training people to lead Godly life. In Proverbs 15:15 whoever listens to Correction is wise. Hebrews 12 :5-8 says be encouraged when corrected. A principle started in schools where children unaware of mistakes are NOT to be corrected so not to discourage or upset them. So focusing only on the ‘best’ creates new problems in society. A generation of children, nobody dare point error to, have grown up believing they are always right. Believing everything is okay with such mindset go into real life with pressure to deliver perfect service without mistakes. They are shocked by unfriendly harsh world that does not pamper or tolerate mistakes. Yet attempts by experienced ones, to guide with constructive criticism to improve, is seen as negative intrusion. All the grown up matured people were once young. So already made some mistakes about to be repeated. To encourage people to focus only on ‘best’ to sweep dirt under carpet breeds bacteria, so worse. To be successful to improve at anything done in life, everyone needs help, correction and support. It cost the church with consequences for overlooking to be nice.

The Queen of England is one of the wisest leaders on earth, yet has 60 barristers in Queen’s counsel advising her. Parliament, secretaries, team of staff support her including whole world. The church needs in-house reality check to do self – assessment to help people grow in Spirit and in Truth. Jesus drove out traders from God’s House of Prayer as Mr. Nice Guy saw good side gained. Jesus acted deeper beyond tolerating things needing correction in Temple. Things fester as Paul warned and rebuked the 7 churches to correct of untold scandals beyond belief in church.

Paul addressed churches of risk of not being hot to be spewed out by Christ. People can be challenged appropriately in love privately by a team of leaders. Women by the older wiser women and men by the men’s group chaired by pastor, with prayer and genuine affection to help the Holy spirit and transform lives. Leaving things to be figured out so not to offend indirectly tolerates inadvertently. So pray for all members of the church by name individually. Be prepared to intercede for souls in spiritual battles when God reveals things to redeem them.

The church is a spiritual hospital so spiritual physicians cannot cover wounds as they are not to cause pain to clean wounds to heal. Pain killers help so much but still treated despite side effect until wound heals. The church must be real with people and not have fear of man. People must be taught from early years to be willing to be corrected in life. Thank you for following God’s Wisdom. A child fully attended to by genuine parental affection and love from family does not need such treatment.

The pillar to post lifestyle is because relatives are not allowed to be involved properly in raising children right. It means deep childhood issues resurface in adults unable to express anger appropriately to come to terms. It costs trillions of pounds to maintain correctional institutional facilities to transform lives. Although parents are not allowed to train, discipline, correct child by God’s Moral Ethical Truth. God says train CHILD so when they grow they will not depart word of God. Proper childhood investment cost few thousand dollars yet Bible is thrown out of schools.

Real priceless well – brought up life is not costed in monetary-term. To correct to deal with early childhood, FOCUS on inner-development not designer shoes, clothes, mansions outwards material things which perish. Godly training protects with blood of Jesus. God’s firm moral standard of discipline prevents festering. Yet instead of letting parents train in early years to prevent: tear gas, pepper spray, beating with batons, shot by rubber bullets, taisser darts to daze, knock out, are shot dead by law makers. There is no need for such abuses if parents and the church is allowed to train by full attention and correction in love. A child’s soul lives eternally but education lasts for only a season. proverbs-3-12-god-corrects-us-gold_1398839561Adults hate discipline while young. As permissive lifestyle seems more appealing. But ignorance is bliss until child grows up to find out parents were right. They were training, preparing them to face and cope with the real world. Many find out childhood innocence, cotton-wool, bubble, cocoon, wrapped is non-existent in real life. So correct and rebuke a child in love not with anger and aggressive confrontation. Wait until temper cools down on another day or at time another talk to politely for mutual respect. Let the person know you love them but hate the wrong choices and actions. Life university continues into eternity forever. So set priorities right about children’s rebuke, correction and discipline.
