OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY... "Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid." Proverbs 12:1. NIV. A good artist needs the self discipline to work his craft every day. So also we need self discipline in our lives. There is the discipline that comes from the teacher or master or God we must know that we need that kind of discipline to develop and mature. If we are resentful when someone attempts to correct us we are making a foolish choice.
