Discipline is a gift from God, and should be a way of life for believers. The book of Proverbs has much to say about discipline, and warns those who would neglect it. We are admonished to listen to reproof, and told that in doing so we will acquire understanding. Discipline removes the folly of sin and pride, and makes way for instruction and wisdom. It brings peace, righteousness, and the fruit of right living. As we examine our own lives, do we see the fruit of this type of discipline?
