Wisdom for the new year - Proverbs 13

A wise son hears his father's instruction,

but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is good,

but the desire of the treacherous is for violence.

Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;

he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. (Proverbs 13:1-3 ESV)

We've all known those people who have never made a mistake, but seem to just throw everybody else under the bus when something bad happens. It is hard to listen to where we made mistakes, but more times than not, they are right. Be very careful about ignoring someone who rebukes you, they may not be 100% right, but you arent either.
