Proverbs 22:6

โ€œFear of the Lord is the foundation of the true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.โ€ (Proverbs 1:7 NLT) While growing up, how many of us liked being told what to do and being disciplined by our parents? I am guessing probably not very many. I remember fearing my parents when I did wrong, but it helped keep me in line. I can appreciate their actions and how the boundaries they showed me then; now help me as an adult. Similarly, God speaks to us through the Bible to try and provide this same structure and discipline, wanting to lead us in the right direction. When we feel convicted, we know that God is at work in our lives – working to make us the best that we can be for the glory of His kingdom. God is good ๐Ÿ˜‰
