“You have also forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons:
‘My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord
or lose heart when reproved by him;
for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines;
he scourges every son he acknowledges.’
Endure your trials as ‘discipline’; God treats you as sons. For what ‘son’ is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are without discipline, in which all have shared, you are not sons but bastards. Besides this, we have had our earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them. Should we not [then] submit all the more to the Father of spirits and live? They disciplined us for a short time as seemed right to them, but he does so for our benefit, in order that we may share his holiness. At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:5-11)
Society often blames poor parenting for juvenile delinquency, and a child generally feels comfortable walking beside the father … we have a sublime Heavenly Father but sometimes we do not walk beside Him.
Father generally knows best because he has accumulated life experiences, but when children disregard parental guidance and disobey their fathers, the juveniles often seek trouble and undesirable outcomes. Children, obey your parents for they give you life knowledge and wisdom in a silver platter to prevent acquiring them from regretful mistakes.
We should implore the Heavenly Father for Knowledge and Wisdom conveyed by the Holy Spirit for holiness. The Holy Spirit grants, as He pleases, information to believers that they could never attain naturally. Through wisdom we can judge the world in the contemplation of God, bear the burdens of this life, and respond to our neighbor with charity and patience. We cannot acquire the gift through study or experience because wisdom is the application of divine Knowledge.
”Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory.” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7)
