Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise. Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.
Let’s face it, bad things happen. What we do when they come defines our character and who we are in Christ. I’ve seen people who I thought were warriors crushed by bad situations, refusing to weather the storm, and quick to fix the problem themselves. That only leads to more pain later on. When trouble finds you, lean on God’s strength and learn from every trial. You will live to fight another day!
