surrender-v. to relinquish possession or control of to another
pride-n. an excessively high opinion of oneself; conceit

pride has to be the worst problem among teenagers. we hate being shot down or corrected. i know that when someone corrects me, i will shoot back with an excuse. i find it so hard to listen to the correction i am being given and take it into consideration. i want to be right. i love to win, and by being corrected, my ego and pride are then crushed. i have to surrender. i have to understand that i dont know it all; at times i think that i do. but i totally dont! i have to surrender to Christ. i have to surrender to my parents. i have to surrender to the correction being given and understand that it is helpful, and that i will need it. Christ puts us in situations, win or lose, we will always prosper and grow. we cant let our pride get in the way of what God is trying to teach us. this is my challenge to yall- put your pride down. let God move in you and dont ignore His correction. because, HE is the ULTIMATE.

Proverbs 3:11-12
my child, dont ingnore it when the Lord disciplines you, and dont be discouraged when He corrects you. for the Lord corrects those He loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights in.
