Secularly, discipline is assumed as a set of established rules in order to specify a position. The discipline gives a positive order when applicable and the one who keeps the discipline also keeps the correction.
Many people like to live a messy life and find it difficult to apply discipline to their life because this is also a value that is learned.
A disciplined person really attracts many positive looks because wherever he is he will be a blessing and for good, then, he will do everything in an organized way and his whole path will be pleasant.
God is also attracted to a person who is disciplined because he is more attentive to hear and keep the word.
In this order of ideas we find in the book of Proverbs in the quoted verse the statement about someone who is in discipline, because although he does not name the word discipline it is understood because he speaks of pleasant paths and when man is organized and disciplined he walks This way and even your enemies appreciate your posture.
We know that God likes order in all the ways of man. The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 14:40
2 but do everything decently and with order. "
Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960). In this way we understand that God is pleased with the disciplined.
Proverbs 12: 1
"He who loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates rebuke is clumsy."
A disciplined person is a person who loves instruction and knowledge because he likes to abide by the rules in the place that is already family, church institution ect. But nevertheless the clumsy or fool abhors instruction.
As Christians we must practice discipline as a way of life.
