Want healing? Don’t reject rebuke

Proverbs 29:1 He who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck,
will suddenly be broken beyond healing.

Steve Miller writes at the “Little Red Blog of Wisdom”

I am one who is often reproved, and am tempted then to simply give up on trying to do right.  But this proverb says that if I stiffen my neck against the reproof I will be broken beyond healing.  It doesn’t say that I shouldn’t be often reproved, but instead says that when I am often reproved, I shouldn’t reject it.

The one who is often reproved is also often broken, but only those who reject discipline will become broken beyond healing.  Healing comes through frequent rebuke.
