June 29 – Proverbs 29: The Rod

The Rod
Proverbs 29

The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Proverbs 29:15 NKJV

Learn and Apply: When I became older, I understood the importance of the rod and rebuke. I have seen that the instructions of my mother and the discipline of my father worked good in me. I even sometimes hoped I had more access to instruction and correction from my parents, a thing I didn’t enjoy at the time.

God rebukes and chastens us with his word and his workings in us, and it is therefore in our best interest to expose ourselves to his living word, which is sharper than any two-edged sword, to the dividing of soul and spirit, exposing the thoughts and intents of the heart (Heb. 4:12). Let us also be open to correction from those whom God has put over us to guide us on our journey to heaven.

As we receive correction and instruction from the Lord, we will be wiser and more ready for heaven.

Pray: Thank you Father for your word which instructs and corrects me. Help me to learn and apply what it says, in Jesus name.
