Getting in Trouble

Getting in trouble, also known as being chastened, is not fun. It does not make you feel good to disappoint someone or to do something that makes you feel guilty. The problem is that if you do not get in trouble sometime, you probably are not learning and growing. The greatest way that humans learn is by failing at something.

There are many proverbs regarding instruction and correction. Solomon used his great wisdom to show us how important they are through his writings.

Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. (Pro. 15:10)

It was restated and expanded upon in Hebrews.

Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. (Heb. 12:11)

Chastening helps us to grow, and it should be done anytime it is necessary, but especially when there is hope.
