Prov 22:15 - Discipline
I used to always apply this verse to parents with kids, but now I've applied it to adults in relation to God. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child (a child of God, regardless of the age), but the rod of DISCIPLINE will remove it from him! When foolishness makes its way into our lives and we end up doing foolish things the character of discipline will the the tool God uses to remove that foolishness from us!
Discipline is doing what you don't want to do in order to accomplish what you want to accomplish. How do you do this? You submit your soul to your spirit - your soul is your mind, will, and emotions, and they are always wanting to rule. Your spirit has to take over and rule them, not allowing your stubborn will, your crazy emotions, or your depraved mind take over. This is discipline. The act of your soul (you) submitting to your spirit (God). When you do this you will stop acting like a child!
