The Lord Disciplines Those He Loves – Proverbs 3:11-12

The Lord Disciplines Those He Loves
Proverbs 3:11-12

11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
and do not resent his rebuke,
12 because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in.

PCDC Commentary

Embrace the discipline of the Lord.
Just as a father disciplines his favorite child,
the Lord disciplines those he loves.

Fear The Lord And Shun Evil 3:7-8

Fear The Lord And Shun Evil
Proverbs 3:7-8

7
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.

PCdc Commentary

Just as Wonder Bread helps build strong bodies 12 ways,
Fearing God and avoiding evil improves your physical health.
Works wonders for your spiritual health, too;
And the health of your family.

Walking By Faith 3:5-6

Walking By Faith
Proverbs 3:5-6

5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

PCdc Commentary

The culture has perverted Faith to mean Blind Faith.
But in the Scriptures, it means Informed Trust.
Trust is built from both learning and experience.
The Scriptures assure us that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob can be trusted.
Our experiences reinforce our faith.

God’s Dynamic Duo 3:3-4

God’s Dynamic Duo
Proverbs 3:3-4

3
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.

PCdc Commentary

Love and Faithfulness are a dynamic pair.
Faithfulness strengthens Love.
Love strengthens Faithfulness.

While Love is not a prerequisite for marriage,
Faithfulness is.
