Humility Is Necessary For Learning

Proverbs 12:1 , 12:15

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, But he who hates reproof is stupid.

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.

These verses should be daily required memorization for teenagers.  But they aren’t the only ones that need to hear this teaching.  We all resist discipline at first.  We all feel like we know enough to get by on our own.  In other words, we all struggle with humility from time to time.

I think you first have to have a healthy humility before you can accept correction and counsel that leads to wisdom.
