14 Proverbs 3:11-12 – The Discipline of the Lord
Jul 19 2016
These two verses in Proverbs 3 teach us a very important lesson. First, God corrects His children. He does so, as Hebrews 12 shows us, out of a perfect love for us. Second, God’s correction of His children is for their good. This is how we grow and mature as Christians, this is how we learn to hate sin more and more, and this is how we are ultimately conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. Finally, we must not grow weary of God’s correction. Why be weary of what does your soul the most good? Rather than rebel against God in this way or reject His correctives, we are to embrace them and humbly submit to our good God in them.
