Teachability, one of our leadership values at Life Church Jersey, has been defined as: "the willingness to relearn things we think we already know."
So, here's what I'm learning; its not IF I need correction, but how I respond to correction that makes all the difference.
Proverbs 9:7-9 NKJV
"He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself, and he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself. Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you; rebuke a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning."
Teachability is revealed through our response to conflict and correction. Our character is displayed through how we endure pain. The question remains; Are you teachable? If you haven't been, you can certainly start right now.
