Proverbs

I have been reading the book of Proverbs in my search for wisdom/guidance, and here are some of the things that are standing out to me, over and over again:

1) Foolish people hate feedback; it’s the wise people who like to be corrected– then they learn from it.

2) It’s better to be poor and happy than rich and unhappy.

3) God hates lies and deception and loves righteousness.

Now to put all these things into practice … to truly embrace constructive criticism, to rejoice in happiness, to rid myself of my deceitful ways.  I want to be a better, wiser woman.

  1. I am currently trying to work hard on embracing constructive criticism. I do a lot of “public” type service things (acting, singing, audio, directing) at church, so I go out of my way to ask people that I trust what I could have done better. I always cringe a little before they answer, but very often their feedback is helpful. I figure the more I seek out constructive criticism, the better I will be at handling it when it is unexpected. Plus, I really do want to learn and grow. I want to be a better and wiser woman too. Some days, though, I think I have a really long way to go! ha ha

  2. Hi, Jackie, I hope you are feeling better. You’ve been in my prayers!

    It is hard for me to listen to constructive criticism sometimes, but I would rather work on improving than think everything is a-OK when it’s not. I’m working on it like Sunny is.
