Proverbs 13:18 ” He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.”

The Bible speaks a lot about discipline…but most times we bristle at that word. That’s because our selfish pride and egotism usually takes offense when anyone tries to correct us. But it tells us very bluntly in Proverbs 12:1, “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.” When we reject wise counsel, we are just undisciplined fools running wild and far from the Way of the Lord. For when we are corrected, these wise words fall on deaf ears and are futile as if spoken to a hardened heart. But it tells us here that if we listen to Godly counsel we will be honored in the end. So remember, “It’s better to heed a wise man’s rebuke than to listen to the song of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:5)
