Proverbs 10:17

He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.

 

      Every Christian is a testimony to someone. You may not think that you are, but there is someone watching your life, they are observing if your life is any different to that of the unsaved.

      One of the ways that we show others we belong to Christ is the way in which we accept correction from God in our lives.  For example when we have gone against God’s will or have willfully sinned against Him, do we come before Him in humbleness and repentance, or do we stubbornly cling to our sin ignoring His correction? God takes no pleasure in disciplining His children, but make no mistake He will do so when we need it because of His great love for us (Hebrews 12:6)!  Just as we discipline our children for their own good. God is a loving and perfect Parent and will not let us live in rebellion to Him indefinitely for it will lead to disastrous results and circumstances.

        Lord help us to accept instruction from God so that our lives may be a blessing to God, to ourselves, and those that we impact each day!
