    BIBLE TEXT:Higher Everyday Devotional 2018

    If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not (Hebrews 12:7)

    A story was told about President Lincoln who signed an order transferring some regiments, during the American civil war. Calling the President a fool, the Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, refused to implement his order. When Lincoln heard of it, he replied, 'Stanton said I'm a fool then I must be, for he is nearly always right, and says what he thinks. I'll step over and see for myself.' Lincoln did. When Stanton convinced him the order was in error, he withdrew it. Higher Everyday Devotional 2018

    What a response to rebuke from a President! How do you respond to rebukes? "Generally, children brought up with excessive freedom and lack of discipline grow up not respecting themselves, their parents or society... " said Shiv Khera. Many people respond negatively to rebukes. However, there is something to learn from every rebuke. Learn to respond wisely and humbly to rebukes from your parents, teachers and elders. Like President Lincoln, seek to understand the reason for rebukes and accept your error with apology. In so doing, God will be pleased with you and you will make progress.
