Pro 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.

Pro 5:22 The iniquities of the wicked ensnare him, and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.
Pro 5:23 He dies for lack of discipline, and because of his great folly he is led astray.

“According to the book of Proverbs, you can tell  someone is a fool by what he thinks about discipline. Does a person welcome correction, or does he avoid it? The fool has a hearty disregard for discipline. And this disregard for discipline only points to his disregard for wisdom. ” (Mark Dever, The Message of the Old Testament)


Rev 12:10  And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.

Rev 12:11  And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.



“If you drift far from the cross, you are done. Your are defeated. We overcome the accuser of our brothers and sisters, we overcome our consciences, we overcome our bad tempers, we overcome our defeats, we overcome our lusts, we overcome our fears, we overcome our pettiness on the basis of the blood of the Lamb. We dare to approach a holy God praying in Jesus’ name, appealing to the blood of the Lamb.” (D.A. Carson, Scandalous, 103)


I will sing to the LORD,
For He has triumphed gloriously
The horse and rider, He has thrown into the sea
The Lord is my strength and my song
And my salvation He has come to be


This is my God, and I will praise Him
With lips and voice I will raise
My father’s God and I will exalt Him
With my life I will follow Him today


Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like you, majestic and holy,
Awesome in glorious deeds
Doing wonders for your children to free!


The Lord will reign forever
And your enemies will be overthrown
By the strength of His arm, Christ has won!
 And is now seated on the throne.


I will sing to the LORD,
For He has triumphed for me
O’r all my sin and my captivity
The Lord is my shelter and my song
My salvation He has won for Me

Proverbs 19

Do we seek Godly wisdom or worldly wisdom when we think about our families. Are we more acquainted with Dr. Phil or with Proverbs?

v. 14 – “House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.”

v. 18 – “Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.”

Pro 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.


Thankful for the favor that I have obtained from the Lord. Not only that I have ‘found’ a wife but for the kind of wife with whom I have been blessed!



This is why we like dogs more than cats.

Which one was more mischievous?
