Proverbs 19:20 New International Version (NIV)
20 Listen to advice and accept discipline,
and at the end you will be counted among the wise.
It seems like from a very young age, we as humans do not want to be disciplined. But discipline leads us to wisdom. God wants us to be wise, he wants us to be good decision makers and live out our life for his glory.
As we are growing, it is not always easy to “listen” to authority figures but try not to think of your position at this current time in your life. Instead think about your future. God has placed people in your life so that they can help you grow. Consider this, God loves you so much that he wants you to be equipped to handle the blessings he has in store for you. You need wisdom in order to be equipped. Combat the urges to be defiant. Examine each situation and ask, what can I learn from this moment of discipline that will lead me to the wisdom that God wants for me?
