Are you wise?

Proverbs 9:7-10

7 Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get a smart retort. Anyone who rebukes the wicked will get hurt. 8 So don't bother rebuking mockers; they will only hate you. But the wise, when rebuked, will love you all the more. 9 Teach the wise, and they will be wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn more.
10 Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in understanding.

How well do you take criticism? Instead of responding with a quick put-down or clever retort, listen to what is being said. Learn from your critics; this is the path to wisdom. Wisdom begins with knowing God. To know God, you must have a personal relationship with Him.
