“A scoffer does not love one who corrects him,
Nor will he go to the wise.
Better is a little with the fear of the Lord,
Than great treasure with trouble.
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
Than a fatted calf with hatred.
The ear that hears the rebukes of life
Will abide among the wise.
He who disdains instruction despises his own soul,
But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding.
The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility.” Proverbs 15:12; 16-17; 31-33
Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and fellowship of His sufferings.
