Rebuke is Difficult to Give and Receive

Tishrei 5/September 9, 2013– Do not rebuke a scoffer, for that person will hate you.  Rebuke a wise person and that person will love you.

(Proverbs   9:8)

For reflection: Is there someone in your life from whom you would accept reproof?  Could you welcome it as a way for growth and improvement?  Is there someone to who, you could offer it and be received in this way?
