August 9

Correct a worthless bragger, and all you will get are insults and injuries. Proverbs 9:7 (cev)
Have you ever had to correct a "Know-It-All"? How dare you question their knowledge, accuracy or judgement? Surely, they can tell you all about Proverbs 9:7.
I personally don't enjoy being corrected per se, but I would rather be corrected that be wrong. I urge you to listen to constructive criticism and grow from it, but also take it with a grain of salt.
Solomon also tells us in Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 Don't listen to everything that everyone says, or you might hear your servant cursing you. Haven't you cursed many others? (cev) Opinions and whispers are everywhere and just like everything else, you must prayerfully analyze and weigh each criticism to see if it is good or bad. Consider what people say, but don't be like the worthless bragger in today's verse.
Oh yeah, don't talk about others behind their backs, either. Someone may be eavesdropping on you. Remember: Guard your thoughts, they control your life.
