Proverbs 28:23

He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

When a friend lovingly rebukes us, it is difficult to take it at the time because of pride. But we will come to the realization that they cared enough to point out our faults and we will be grateful for them. The opposite is true of flattery, we will appreciate it at the time, but in the future, we will realize the individual was attempting to gain some type of favor from us.
