Devotion for October 17

Proverbs 10:1

He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.

We should be ready for correction by anyone in our sphere of influence. Everyone in our sphere of influence. Who are they? Family? Sure. Close friends? Yes. Church? Ok. What about people in the world? If we are going to be in the world then we influence the world. At the mechanic’s, our neighbor’s, at Walmart. But how do we react to correction? Ah yes! Mind your own business.

God chose us to make a difference. Let us be not the one needing to be corrected. Be above reproach in all we say and do one day at a time because we do effect everyone in our sphere of influence .
