SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/08- “Love And Embrace The LORD’s Discipline!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Premise Question: Why, and for what specific purpose, does The LORD discipline those He cherishes and loves, and how should one respond to The LORD’s discipline, when on the receiving end?

“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

My most beloved and precious child, do not regard with contempt, disdain or disgust, The LORD’s faithful instruction and training in righteousness; for it is for your greatest good and benefit, as it produces godliness in you. Rather, welcome and embrace it! Don’t try to hide from it, escape or avoid it, but always relish and revel in it. Be ever thankful for it and take it as a wonderful sign, an indication and beautiful expression, of His great love for you. Furthermore, don’t ever try to circumvent, obfuscate, finagle or manipulate it, but always quickly accept and yield to it, with a grateful heart, for you’ll be better off, in so doing. And, whatever you do, refuse to take offense or be annoyed, irritated, irked or indignant, when The LORD decides to reprimand you because of His disapproval of your ungodly behaviors, actions and attitudes. For He only ever brings His directed correction into the lives of those He truly cherishes and dearly loves. Even as a loving and caring earthly parent will administer carefully crafted correction to their own precious child, whom they take the greatest of pleasure, enjoyment and contentment in, knowing that the discipline they administer will bring much benefit to the child, so too, it is for this very reason, that The LORD faithfully administers, with great care, His loving discipline to His own beloved and cherished children. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The simple and most obvious reason why The LORD disciplines those He loves is, because His greatest desire is to have a holy, honorable, right, good, satisfying, flourishing and completely fulfilling relationship, with a strong unbreakable connection, that will not ever be disconnected, discontinued or broken, with them.

The LORD derives His greatest pleasure and delight from interacting, protecting, providing for and seeing His very own unique creation, revel, rejoice and succeed in life.

He, The LORD GOD—The Creator, absolutely adores us, as He has placed His great love and strong affinity for us above all others and everything else in His creation; whether they be in Heaven or on earth.

The LORD GOD’s allegiance and unfailing love for all of humankind, is clearly shown towards and put on display, for all to see and personally experience, by not holding His best back from them, but freely offering the very best of Himself, in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ and the power and personal presence of His Holy Spirit, to redeem, lead, guide, direct and help them in their daily lives. In all of this, He proves His undying love, care and concern for His very own chosen and unique people.

Now, for the specific purposes, that He disciplines His own, I’ve already touched on, but here is the central core of what His purpose is. He does it for our own good and greatest benefit, as well as, the benefit of others and so that, we will not only be completely fit, in spirit, soul and body, but also that we will be fit for The Kingdom, flourish in The Kingdom and enabled to effectively do the work of The Kingdom.

The LORD will be ever faithful and diligent to make sure that we will become, achieve and do, all that we were intentionally designed and created to do.

This, because we are His greatest masterpiece and workmanship, in the whole of His creation.

Finally, our response to The LORD’s discipline being administered to us in our daily lives, should be one of gratitude, thankfulness, great appreciation, and also, accept and realize that it is such a huge honor to be so fortunate to be loved and cherished in this manner and fashion, by our creator—The LORD GOD Almighty.

So, love and embrace The LORD’s discipline in your life. You can’t go wrong by doing it; and it really is in your best interest and for your greatest good! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/06- “A Healthy Dose Of Constructive Correction Is Good For Anyone And Everyone!” (Proverbs 15:31-32)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/06- “A Healthy Dose Of Constructive Correction Is Good For Anyone And Everyone!” (Proverbs 15:31-32)

Premise Question: Why do so many of us have a difficult time receiving appropriately administered discipline, and why is it such an intense fight and colossal personal challenge for many to relent and submit to the process of allowing oneself to first, be open to intently listening and then, to be earnestly diligent, in becoming completely compliant and submissive to constructive, appropriate correction, when the resulting positive benefits always far outweigh the culminating negative consequences?

“If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise. If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:31-32‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Anyone and everyone, no matter who they are or from whence they’ve come, if they will give careful and thoughtful attention, being deliberate, as well as diligent in the application and action, in their lives, to The LORD’s life-giving, redeeming reproof, will always have a place at the table of the enlightened—those that are truly wise. Those though, who persist in their rebellious ways, by rejecting or ignoring completely The LORD’s perfect instruction, administered through His loving correcting discipline, hate themselves and are self-destructive; but those who choose to surrender fully to The LORD’s loving discipline, gains insight that sustains and retains their life, which causes them to forever remain in His glorious eternal presence—our tranquil and joyous eternal home. (Proverbs 15:31-32 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Everyone of us who are born into this world are members of the same family and species known as Homo sapiens—humankind, or as multiplied millions of individuals believe, the progeny of Adam and Eve; as we are the direct descendants and blessed offspring of the first of our kind, who having been divinely designed and uniquely created with perfection and for a great purpose, by Papa God Himself, but then succumbed to temptation and sinned, thereby, falling from perfection and into a sinful state, with a sinful nature, that they have naturally passed on down to everyone who has come after them.

So, we all have come by it honestly and quite naturally, so to speak, as we all are born with the same fallen sinful nature, and therefore, even at birth, already have a pre-disposed inclination, dispositional nature of resistance, rebellion, stubbornness, being obstinate and absolutely incorrigible, when it comes to appropriate discipline, training and beneficially good, constructive correction being administered into our lives.

Unfortunately for many, if when young, they do not have a correction in the direction their life is heading, by first, learning to listen, then to relent, submit and comply, (I refer to this as “corrected direction”) and then, by allowing themselves to be trained, developed, equipped and thereby, enabling them to grow to full maturity, (I call this “directed correction”) it becomes a much greater challenge later in life, and is most likely the very reason one would become so reticent, hesitant and stay downright obstinately stubborn, while having a adverse and negative reaction to discipline and correction when confronted and held accountable for any of their behaviors, actions or attitudes.

It is our embracing of and appropriate response to constructive correction and discipline, that determines the outcome of our life; who we may be living with, under what conditions we will be living, whether or not we will be living in harms way or growing in wisdom and understanding and enjoying a peaceful and flourishing life.

So remember, a healthy dose of constructive correction and appropriate disciple never really hurt anyone, although, at the time, while it is being administered, it may not feel good, be pleasant or very agreeable, but in the end, it will do its good work and divine purpose and shall therefore, produce a wonderful and bountiful harvest of righteousness!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/18- “Trust Your Friends Rebuke—Don’t Ever Trust An Enemy’s Compliments!” (Proverbs 27:5-6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/18- “Trust Your Friends Rebuke—Don’t Ever Trust An Enemy’s Compliments!” (Proverbs 27:5-6)

Premise Question: Are we wise and mature enough to recognize and accept an open rebuke from a dear and close friend, when it’s for our own good and benefit; or are we so shallow, sensitive and thin skinned, that we live, yearn and thrive, only on the compliments of others, and even if and when it’s a detriment to our own well being, are we still willing and subject too, accepting the adulation and excessive compliments that come from an avowed enemy?

“An open rebuke is better than hidden love! Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.” (Proverbs‬ ‭27:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When you truly love and approve of someone, it’s much more virtuous and acceptable to be open and transparent with them, by administering a firm, but gentle rebuke, when appropriate! Hurtful insults that causes anguish, distress and heartache, which results in producing heartbreak, actually are trustworthy, when they come from a close friend, who has your best interest and well being at heart. But, deceitful, excessive compliments, with expressions of feigned affections are nothing but lies, and especially so, when they come from an avowed enemy. (Proverbs 27:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Unfortunately, all too many of us receive our sense of self-worth and validation entirely from others; through the expressions and comments that are uttered with wonderful sounding platitudes and high praise!

Not that being complementary of others is all bad, per se, because we ought to give honor where honor is due, and we ought to build each other up, through encouraging and by refreshing one another.

But we also ought to be mature and grownup enough to be able to receive strong correction and appropriate discipline, when and where it is needed; administered in the form of a gentle, but firm, righteous rebuke from a loved and respected, highly regarded, brother or sister in The LORD!

That we should be loving, kind, generous, respectful and considerate of one another, should be quite obvious and entirely apparent to everyone! But it should also be just as obvious and apparent to everyone, that being open and transparent, authentic and real, with each other, is just as vitally critical, as it will truly, (by having this perspective and attitude, and then actually implementing and doing it) prove our love, compassion, kindness, generosity, respect and consideration for one another!

Dear LORD, help each and everyone of us to mature and grow up in such a way, that we will not be susceptible to being wooed, influenced or swayed, by the compliments of others, including our avowed enemies; but that we will be strong and courageous, standing firm in our faith—unmovable, always being open and ready to receive, with joy, an appropriate and open rebuke, accompanied by righteous correction!

Remember, receiving an appropriate open rebuke and righteous correction, really is for our own benefit, our greatest good and interest, as well as, our overall spiritual well being. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Premise Question: Who of us really enjoys being disciplined, corrected, reprimanded and reproved; but, what would be the outcome if everyone that needed an appropriate rebuke, choose to truly, with joy, fully embrace the process, in an attitude of humility and complete submission?

“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

My dearly beloved precious child, decide right now to never refuse or ever reject The LORD GOD Almighty’s very deliberate and diligent, careful and loving, nurturing chastening of you. And, also choose to not ever become bitter or resentful of His faithful, considerate concern and resolute reproof of you; for it’s truly only done for your greatest good and benefit. Do always remember, that just like an earthly father will administer loving correction to his own children, that he delights in, so too, does Papa God only bring His merciful and loving correction upon those children whom He joyfully delights to lavish His gracious favor and unfailing love upon. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: One of the most difficult lessons, that everyone must learn, is the great value and tremendous blessings that loving, appropriate and consistent discipline brings and adds to a person’s life experience. Although it may seem quite difficult during the time the necessary correction is being administered, as it may be extremely hard to endure, once it has run its course, the wonderful, useful and greatly beneficial fruit that discipline produces in one’s life, is not only a benefit to the individual, but also to those they may come into contact with, and have interaction with, in various forms and different ways.

Remember, that The LORD never wastes anything that may happen to us or that we may go through, due to our own behavioral choices, decisions and actions or as a result of others and what they may do; that ends up having a direct affect upon our own lives.

The LORD will utilize all of it; in shaping, making, maturing and growing the individual, in order to fully accomplish His purpose, will and the unique mission in life that each of us are called to do.

So, child of Papa God, don’t ever reject, disdain or be upset when The LORD disciplines you—who are His greatly beloved and most cherished very own children, whom He joyfully delights in; and therefore will absolutely correct, discipline and appropriately reprimand, as needed, as well as, whenever and wherever it’s necessary! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/25- “The Search For Authenticity—Let Papa God Be The Final Arbiter!” (Psalm 139:23-24)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/25- “The Search For Authenticity—Let Papa God Be The Final Arbiter!” (Psalm 139:23-24)

Premise Question: Is it ever a good idea or does it ever work out to our own advantage or benefit, when we try to manage, hold things back or keep things in our lives hidden away from others and The LORD?

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:23-24‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Thoroughly examine and scrutinize me, Sovereign Almighty Papa God, and know with certainty and a clear perception, completely understanding the very core of who I am at the innermost part of my being, the seat of my emotions; test and try me, in order to determine and evaluate my authenticity and genuineness, and clearly discern my mental anguish, as I am afflicted with great distress and concern. Perceive whether there be any displeasing, rebellious, insolent, unpleasant, disagreeable or repugnant manner, unacceptable attitude or inappropriate behavior in me; for I fully surrender myself to Your leadership, Your purpose and perfect will for my life, being confidently assured that You shall guide and direct my path upon the everlasting divine way of Your eternal truth and life. (Psalm 139:23-24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We don’t ever really gain any kind of edge, benefit or advantage when we, on our own, try to just manage our sin, our challenges and issues going on in our lives, by keeping things hidden in compartments of our lives, away from the view and knowledge of others, under lock, chains and keys of secrecy. For all that we end up accomplishing, is a self-imposed incarceration of being held captive in a prison of our own doing and our own mind! We will never truly be successful in trying to keep those things under wraps, as they eventually become unmanageable and begin to come apart at the seams, unravelling at an alarming rate, completely out of our’s or anyone else’s control, save The LORD’S! That’s why it is so vitally important to be open, transparent and accountable to The LORD, and others, by confessing our sins, faults, mistakes, misgivings and failings with those, who also confess their own sin, challenges and issues with The LORD and others.

The LORD doesn’t need us to tell Him what’s going on in our lives, even the parts we think are hidden and buried deep, within our within, with a no access or trespassing sign posted, a gate and huge lock and chain on it! For in The LORD’S case, it’s completely impossible to keep anything hidden away from His view or knowledge, as He sees all, hears all and is fully aware of all, at all times, on all occasions, as nothing ever escapes His omniscience.

Papa God wants us to be open and transparent with Him, because it is what we need and should do, in order to come clean, be made clean and have the ability to have a just, right, satisfying and fulfilling, authentic, intimate, personal relationship with Papa God; as this will work to our greatest advantage and extreme benefit in every area and compartment of our lives.

So, in our search for authenticity, validation and acceptance, let Papa God be the final arbiter of everything in our lives, as He will always faithfully lead and guide us upon the path of eternal truth, life, with complete joy and perfect bliss. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/27- “Don’t Get Stuck On Stupid!” (Proverbs 12:1)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/27- “Don’t Get Stuck On Stupid!” (Proverbs 12:1)

Premise Question: What is the prudently wise, being the utmost effective way in producing the most preferred and desired results, in order for a person to learn, develop, grow and mature spiritually, emotionally, socially and then, to also have a high degree of mental acumen?

To learn, you must love discipline; it is stupid to hate correction. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭12‬:‭1‬ NLT)

No matter who you are, if you’ll relish discipline, by fully embracing and allowing it to thoroughly train and equip you, in order to develop obedience in you, and, if you’ll be a lover of knowledge, by cherishing the principles of truth, it will increase your insight and understanding; causing an awareness in you of the great benefits derived from being one who loves, rather than disdains and despises discipline. But, if you are one who dislikes intensely, having an extreme hostility for and a detestable aversion to correction, by not yielding yourself to it, and then, allowing the necessary and appropriate remedy, along with any properly proposed adjustment to be applied to your wrongful thinking, inappropriate behavior or actions, then, you are simply quite foolish, without any sense, common or otherwise, and can therefore, be identified as being just plain stupid. (Proverbs 12:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Whatever walk or ilk a person comes from in life, there is going to come a time in their lives where they can no longer feign being ignorant or unaware. There may be a time in their lives though, that they are unaware that they’re even unaware! But once they’ve become aware, and been given the opportunity, through discipline and correction, to gain knowledge, understanding and insight, so as not to be unaware and ignorant any longer, they must necessarily take full responsibility for their thoughts, actions and behaviors. For when a person becomes aware and then chooses to not let go of their ignorant ways of thinking, with the accompanying behaviors, they can, at that time, be considered to be a stupid fool!

It’s therefore, an absolute imperative, that in order to learn and acquire the knowledge needed to develop, mature and grow, in all areas of life, a person should embrace and love the discipline and correcting process; for it is, without a doubt, the most judiciously prudent way and will have the greatest effect, while producing the ultimate and most desired results.

There’s an old saying: “You can’t fix stupid!” So don’t get stuck on stupid, by hating correction and discipline. Ignorance can be corrected and ultimately fixed, but there’s pretty much no hope for the belligerently stupid. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/03- “A Potent And Persuasive Admonition!” (Romans 12:3)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/03- “A Potent And Persuasive Admonition!” (Romans 12:3)

Premise Question: Why is it so very important to not think of yourself as being superior to others, and that you be real, authentic and honest in your own appraisal of yourself?

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭3‬ NLT)

Because of The LORD’S unmerited favor and jurisdiction, that He personally gave to me, in a spectacular and serendipitous manner, I am compelled to share this instructive and extremely vital exhortation and admonition with you: do not ever consider yourself above or better than someone else, by thinking that you are in some way superior to them in virtue, or significantly more valuable and important than they are. But, rather, exhibit wisdom, humility, propriety, self-control and restraint, by refusing to think of yourself in that way; always choosing to be in alignment and complete agreement with, while conforming to, the very measure of faith that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has given to each one of us. (Romans 12:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Recognizing, accepting and fully complying with the authority and jurisdiction of the Apostle Paul’s potent and persuasive exhortation and vital admonition to us, will produce many blessings and benefits, along with wonderfully efficacious results in our lives and ministry and is ultimately quite pleasing to Papa God.

Therefore, it is of the greatest importance that we always be genuinely authentic in our faith, in our approach and in our perception of others; refusing to ever believe that we are superior to them.

We should be ethically honorable and completely straightforward, when it comes to how we look at, adjudicate and perceive ourselves; always making sure that we are open and honest, when accessing and appraising ourselves, by calculating and gauging our lives, by how it measures up to and comes into alignment with, the faith that each of us has been personally given by Papa God.

Remember, all of us have been redeemed because of Papa God’s unfailing love, by and through His gracious favor and great and undeserved mercy!

So, let us take this warning to heart and practice, and never be subject to thinking too highly of ourselves, or that we are more deserving and virtuous than that of others. Blessings…
