My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
Length of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who retain her.
The Lord brings discipline into our lives to better fit us for life.
Discipline may be a tool to strengthen what is correct.
I'm really enjoying this new devotional book, Discovering the Bible. It gives great insight and is really making me think about the Lord and how he works in our lives and how incredible He is.
My mom and I went on a pretty lengthy hike today to Skunk Harbor. We got loads of sand and dirt in our shoes but once we made it there, we hopped into the clear water. It was a beautiful sight and well worth the long trek.
