“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.” Proverbs 3:11-12
It’s only fitting that we read Proverbs 1:7 today. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”
Don’t be a fool! Don’t hate it when God wants to teach you something. Don’t turn your back on his guidance and direction. Instead take every opportunity to learn from him. Take every opportunity to be directed by him. Take every opportunity to grow in him.
