Reproof

is,

Blame expressed to one's face;
seeing a fault and condemning
that fault as wrong;
(seeing ones' own
sin, as reflected
in God's
Word
.)

Whoso loveth instruction
loveth knowledge:
but he that hateth reproof
is brutish.

Proverbs 12:1

All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:
that the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished
unto all good works.

2 Timothy 3:16 and 17
