BDBD is Proverbs 12:1

Discipline and correction are one of the themes of Proverbs. The theme is first recited in 1:7, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline (instruction).” Discipline is cited as a source of knowledge, “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge…”
   Why does the Lord God teach with disciple? Because I am stubborn and slow to learn. God’s discipline is seldom harsh, yet always cutting. Jesus often rebuked his stubborn disciples with rhetorical questions. “How long will I live with this unbelieving generation?” “Are you slow to learn? How many loaves did we have left over?”

I can hear Jesus today, right through the Holy Spirit, the Wonderful Counselor if I ask for him to talk and if I quiet my mind from my scattered thoughts. Meditation as taught by Ignatius of Loyola and the Benedicts.

What is revealed I must obey. If I don’t I am stupid for “whoever hates correction is stupid.” When I read the word I must trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy on Jesus, but to trust and obey.
