I truly understand why we run or try to avoid getting corrected. Who wants to admit they were wrong in any situation or that they played a part in why something happened? None of us!
So many times we want to run away from our correction due to how uncomfortable we may feel which is stated in Hebrews 12:11 "Now no chastening for the present seemeth joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." But we must get to a point where we can endure the correction process because we will be better on the other side of it.
God even reminds us in the Bible that even as our earthly parents do their best to train us, He wants to do the same with us (Hebrews 12:9-10). He wants us to be the best versions of ourselves and in order to accomplish this, there will be times some changes need to take place.
I am learning that the correction process also can be easier if I try not to fight it so hard. By doing this, I can allow God to lead and prune me of the things within me that are not producing any good fruit. Read more about this in John 15:1-8 and allow God to develop the good fruit of character in you too!
