Discipline (godly training) is an important part of our growing in Christian maturity.

BibleGateway: Proverbs 19:18-23

ESV Text: Proverbs 19:18-23


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:55 and ends at about 2:44

     18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.

     19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.

     20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

     21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.

     22 The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

     23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 517:
The Will of God is Always Best

1. The will of God is always best 
And shall be done forever; 
And they who trust in Him are blest, 
He will forsake them never. 
He helps indeed In time of need, 
He chastens with forbearing; 
They who depend On God, their Friend, 
Shall not be left despairing. 

2. God is my Comfort and my Trust, 
My Hope and life abiding; 
And to His counsel wise and just, 
I yield in Him confiding. 
The very hairs, His Word declares, 
Upon my head He numbers. 
By night and day God is my Stay, 
He never sleeps nor slumbers. 

3. Lord Jesus, this I ask of Thee, 
Deny me not this favor: 
When Satan sorely troubles me, 
Then do not let me waver. 
Keep watch and ward, O gracious Lord, 
Fulfil Thy faithful saying: 
Who doth believe He shall receive 
An answer to His praying. 

4. When life’s brief course on earth is run 
And I this world am leaving, 
Grant me to say: “Thy will be done.” 
By faith to Thee still cleaving. 
My heavenly Friend, I now commend 
My soul into Thy keeping, 
O’er sin and hell, And death as well, 
Through Thee the victory reaping.
