Before Glory There Is Humility

 The one who listens to life-giving reproof
Is at home among the wise. Anyone refusing discipline despises his life,
But whoever listens to reproof acquires understanding.
================================
Stressing the value of accepting discipline in its various forms, the wise king says: “The ear that is listening to the reproof of life lodges right in among wise people. Anyone shunning discipline is rejecting his own soul, but the one listening to reproof is acquiring heart.” (Proverbs 15:31, 32) Reproof, or discipline, reaches a person’s heart and adjusts it, giving him good sense. No wonder it is “the rod of discipline” that removes the ‘foolishness tied up with the heart of a boy’!  The one listening to discipline also acquires heart, that is, good motive. On the other hand, to shun discipline is to reject life.
