Love or Hate

Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid. #Bible

One who sees the benefits of discipline learns to love discipline and loves the knowledge gained.
This word “Loves” has the idea of recognizing a gift from God and discipline is to turn, from what you do in ignorance to what is right.
Knowledge means ” the door of the eye”, to know through seeing you experience, or through the experience of another. It can come through knowing someone intimately and personally.
To hate reproof is to turn away or reject it because you see no benefit.
Reproof means ” wall hand” it is to correct or chastise with a firm hand.
Stupid is to be barbarous, or brutish, burning with fire or rage, acting like an animal.
It’s simple love God and receive all he gives you, even being disciplined, knowing the outcome is worth it.
If you reject reproof hating it, then be content to live your life like an animal, preferring to be  stupid fearing what will make you a better person.
