Accept God’s Reprimand

Posted: July 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

Proverbs 3:11-12 NAS

My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reprimand, For who the LORD loves He reprimands, Even as a father corrects the son in who he delights.

I just want to share this verse because it touched me. I don’t know exactly what to say about it because I don’t want to say something wrong. I feel in my heart that we ought to listen to these wise words. Firstly because they are the inspired word of God. Secondly because if we turn from the rebuke that God stirs into us through the Holy Spirit its like turning from God himself and ignoring that he is helping enlighten us to our sin. He is just trying to help guide us onto the path that leads to Jesus.

Its such a small path too:

Matthew 7:13-14 NIV

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
