RCCG Open Heaven 31 July 2022 Daily Devotional Message
Many a time, we do things that are wrong without knowing it. We just act as we like, whereas we are hurting other people or exhibiting a bad attitude. Those who are wise listen when people correct them and take to correction where appropriate. Those who are foolish however make excuses and ignore the correction. When we study the life of David and Saul.
we will see the lot of the wise and the foolish ones. When Saul did wrong and Samuel corrected him, he made excuses and even tore Samuel’s garment in his refusal to take to correction in the presence of his subjects (1 Samuel 15:13-27).

For David on the other hand, when Prophet Nathan corrected him, he immediately became sober and did all that he could to right his wrong (2 Samuel 12:15-18). At the end of the day, we see one of the reasons why God rejected Saul and loved David-their attitude to correction.
When people tell you that you get angry easily and you say, “No, I don’t get angry easily, it is just some useless people around me that get me angry” or that you are lazy and sleep too much, but you respond, “The body is not wood; it needs rest once in a while, after all even Jesus slept while He was here on earth”, or even that you talk too much and you say, “Do you want me to become dumb?” then you have a problem and you must attend to it immediately.
When God sends people to a person yet he or she keeps giving excuses, our memory verse for today says that the fellow will be suddenly destroyed and that destruction will be without remedy. If you want to see an example of this, look at Saul. The Bible says in (1 Samuel 3:19) that God so honoured the word of Prophet Samuel that not a word of his fell to the ground without being fulfilled, but when Samuel was pleading on behalf of Saul, God told him to stop wasting his time as He had already found a replacement for him (1 Samuel 16:1).
That little behaviour that your spouse, boss, colleague, family members or neighbours have been correcting you about can either make or mar you; it depends on whether you take the correction or not. That little thing can bring irredeemable destruction if you are not careful. A word is enough for the wise.
What are those things people have been telling you that you need to correct? Take the feedback today and begin to make the necessary corrections in line with God’s word..
