11.12.2010 Proverbs 12:1

Proverbs Post #19-

Today I was reading in chapter 12, price and verse 1 popped out to me today.  It says:

12:1 The one who loves discipline loves knowledge, buy cialis
but the one who hates reproof is stupid.

“The one who loves discipline loves knowledge” is pretty clear, if you want to learn you must accept correction.  This brings up an interesting point which is, correction means we did something wrong, which means you “failed.”  We must learn that failing is a part of the process of learning.  As you will see, the alternative is not so nice.

“The one who hates reproof is stupid.”  This is pretty clear also but just for clarification, the footnotes in the Net Bible says, “It describes the moral fool who is not willing to learn from correction.”

I think it is a pretty easy choice, but here it goes anyways.  Do you want to love discipline or be stupid?

I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well.  Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts.
