Right Into You!

Most of the time we like to think we are right,
the thought of being wrong not even in sight,
so we hold our head high while walking in stride,
as in ourselves we often take great pride,
and those who try to correct are seen as the enemy,
for how dare they question the mind that lives inside of we,
it is such thinking that ultimately leads to our decline,
which is why we must be transformed by the renewing of our mind,
accepting the correction of others not as an attack as we so often say,
but rather as words of truth spoken in love to help us grow each day,
for though we don't like to concede that we are wrong,
it is such confession and repentance that helps us become strong,
So we should allow others to speak into us and take their words in love,
for often what they are saying is straight from the Father above,
The fact that iron sharpens iron is a proverb that holds true,
When your siblings in faith pour words of truth spoken in love right into you.
