GetWisdom Proverbs 12:1

I got a lot of discipline as a child. I never liked it or loved my mom or grandparents for doing it as a child, but now I appreciate it. They were helping me to get wisdom. They weren’t out to hurt me; they were out to help me.

Some kids that I grew up with didn’t receive discipline from their parents. Many of them ended up in bad places.

Verse of the day

Proverbs 12:1, “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.”

“Loving” discipline means having a willingness to accept or embrace it, and to grow from it.

Discipline is more than just punishment. It incorporates instruction and training.

  • Proverbs 13:18
  • Proverbs 15:5
  • Proverbs 15:10
  • Proverbs 15:12
  • Proverbs 15:31
  • Proverbs 15:32


The bottom line is this: don’t reject discipline or instruction from someone else. Don’t be stupid. Receive discipline and love knowledge.

We all need to learn, grow, and get wisdom.
