We say we want to be better. We say we want to grow and improve and even achieve more. When we say these things, we need to realize that most growth occurs through adversity. We learn much more from our failures than from our successes. The same is true when it comes to our relationships. We need others in our life who love us so much that they will point out what we need to do to become better, to grow, to improve and to achieve more. We need to love others enough to be willing to hear what they are saying and apply the correction.
Lord, thank You for loving me so much for telling me what I need to hear and not what I want to hear and thank You for putting others in my life that also love me enough to help me grow.
