I have noticed that being corrected is not one of my favorite experiences. I have also discovered that I am not alone in my sentiments. Adult children do not like their parents to correct them. Siblings usually do not accept correction from each other graciously. Our friends may be allowed to give us advice but they know they must do it with caution.

We tend to think we should be able to reach an age when others recognize our maturity and accept our choices without question. But scripture tells us, age or power is never a reason to refuse the advice of others (Ecclesiastes 4:13).
