Proverbs 13-15/John 5-8
13:24 If you refuse to discipline your children, it proves you don’t love them; if you love your children, you will be prompt to discipline them.
14:34 Godliness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
15:5 Only a fool despises a parent’s discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.
5:39-40 “You search the Scriptures because you believe they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! Yet you refuse to come to me so that I can give you this eternal life.”
OT Flash Points
Fools stay away from the wise because they can’t tolerate their ignorance unveiled
NT Flash Points
You don’t understand or believe Me because my Words convict and rebuke
Battles are won or lost privately before God
Confrontation or dealing with people must bring them to a point of choice by their will
None need follow Man
For his path will end short
But we must follow Jesus
He gently leads us
Along the path of life
Shining His light as we go
Shining His light wherever we go
