Today's Verse : Proverbs 10:17

He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray. — Proverbs 10:17

Thought

Discipline is not only important to us, but also to those who are influenced by our actions. So often we undervalue the impact of our personal decisions on others. But God has placed each of us in a circle of influence to be a blessing and a redemptive influence on those around us. To choose what is foolish, to ignore godly correction, not only jeopardizes our own future, but also the future of others.

Prayer

Father, humble and correct me gently. I know I am weak and not where I want to be spiritually. Mature me with your Spirit and correct me with your Word, your shepherds, and your discipline. Make my influence a blessing to those you have placed around me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
