There are 4 conditions that must be met in order for a reprimand to bring more favor than genuine compliments. The first condition that must be met is the reprimand must be towards a wise man. Doing so to anyone else will be futile. I’ll repeat that another way, reprimanding a fool is a waste of time and effort. The other conditions that must be met are the following: the reprimand must be done appropriately, the reprimand must be done in the right way, and the reprimand must be done at the right time.
First thing, ensure you are a person who responds to a reprimand as a wise person would. One of the best ways you gain wisdom is by reading, seeking, and meditating on God’s wisdom on a daily basis. Through the process of becoming a wise person, you’ll naturally respond to reprimands appropriately and you’ll also learn how to appropriately give advice and reprimand others.
