7 One who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself,

And one who rebukes a wicked person gets insults for himself.

8 Do not rebuke a scoffer, or he will hate you;

Rebuke a wise person and he will love you.

9 Give instruction to a wise person and he will become still wiser;

Teach a righteous person and he will increase his insight.


  • Bible Verses on condemnation
  • Condemnation can be a judgment by God or a weapon wielded by Satan
  • Satan tries to convince us we are condemned and unworthy of salvation; Satan is a liar
  • We should never condemn anyone, instead focus on forgiveness (Matthew 18:22-35)



  • Must be internal
  • The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin
  • This is what gives us the motivation to change and be more Christ-like
