You Love It Or Hate It
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.—Proverbs 12:1
There are different types of discipline here. One is a self-inflicted discipline; this is the type that we choose to subject our character, behavior, and desires too because we know that it will produce positive results. The other is an others-inflicted discipline called here "reproof," and this is executed on us by others because we are not able to inflict discipline ourselves. They are both painful, and they both have the potential to produce positive results. That is unless we hate it—then we are stupid. Don't you love the truth—ouch!
DO THIS: Don't be stupid.
PRAY THIS: God, make me more sensitive to your discipline so that daily I become wiser and less of the other.
