SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/06/15- “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 the constructive 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 wha 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. 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 purpose and produce a harvest of righteousness!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/17/15- “The LORD Disciplines His Own, Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/17/15- “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 very beloved and greatly 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: 06/27/15- “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 of 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- 06/07/15- “All Of Papa God’s Holy Scriptures Are Inspired!” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/07/15- “All Of Papa God’s Holy Scriptures Are Inspired!” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Premise Question: What are the vital reasons Papa God’s Holy Scriptures were revealed and given to us and for what divine purposes?
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT)
All of the Holy Scriptures, both in the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by and come directly from the heart and mouth of Papa God; delivered to humankind through the very breath of The Holy Spirit; therefore, it’s exceedingly helpful in teaching us truth and imparting His wonderful knowledge, as well as, developing skillfully, the talents and abilities He has conferred upon us, for doing great exploits, that will bring Him glory, honor and praise. His Holy Writ is also given for our great benefit, in reproving and reprimanding all error and rebellion, truing any mistakes or faults, by correcting them, while giving intense instruction in the disciplining process, for the purpose of attaining righteous conduct and behavior, so that, the one who is serving Papa God, will have at their disposal, being completely provided with, whatever is needed for the undertaking, of achieving all possible benevolent, morally excellent, virtuous activities and deeds.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The vital reasons The Holy Scriptures have been given to all of us, humankind, is to reveal Papa God’s heart of love to and for His creation, to show us the path of reconciliation, in order to be restored back to Him in right relationship. He accomplishes this by utilizing The Scriptures to teach us the truth, exposing the wrong within us, correcting us when we make mistakes, refining and purifying us, instructing us in righteousness, in order to enable us to do what is right. The divine purposes for which The Holy Scriptures were given are; to fully equip and prepare His people, developing the skills, talents and abilities, that He’s conferred upon each one of us. This, in order to do great and astonishing exploits, that produce a harvest of good works and deeds; which accomplishes His greatest purpose, will and desire for humankind, that of being reconciled and restored back to Him, for a flourishing and refreshing relationship of perfect peace, love and harmony, which results in us experiencing sweet and unbroken fellowship. Blessings…

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. (Proverbs 15:31-32 NIV)
