The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.
– Proverbs 15:31
The process of admitting fault and initiating change is a difficult one. It is a journey that, in my experience, starts with attempts at self-justification, involves plenty of internal bludgeoning by the Holy Spirit, and results in the gain of a small measure of healthy humility. The fact is, not many people enjoy being incorrect.
