Don’t get addicted to hearing only what you want to hear. (Dr. Henry Cloud, self-help author)

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t seem to hear anything negative. He or she doesn’t take criticism; it just doesn’t register with them. People who are like that may miss some very helpful constructive criticism that others could help them with. It’s their loss, of course, but we must not limit ourselves to hearing only those things that please us.

Whoever heeds correction is honored. Whoever heeds correction shows prudence. (Proverbs 13:18; 15:5)
