Verse of the Day – Proverbs 3:11-12


Proverbs 3:11-12

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.


The word for punishment in this chapter is also translated “discipline” to teach and to train. Discipline sounds negative to many people, because some disciplinarians are not loving. God, however, is the source of all love. He doesn’t punish us because he enjoys inflicting pain but because he is deeply concerned about our development. He knows that in order to become morally strong and good, we must learn the difference between right and wrong. His loving discipline enables us to do this.

It’s difficult to know when God has been disciplining us until we look back on the situation later. Not all bad things that happen to us come directly from God, of course. But if we are in rebellion against God, refusing to repent when he has identified some sin in our lives, we can safely assume that God is using guilt, cries, or bad experiences to encourage us to turn to him, Sometimes, however, difficult times come when there is no flagrant sin in our lives. Our response than should be patience, integrity, and trust that God will show us what to do.



Father God in heaven we thank you for your discipline because you love us. Help us to have a teachable and obedient heart. Give us a humble and repentant heart, we surrender to you our weaknesses because you are our strength.    This is our prayer in Jesus name we pray.  Amen
