They hate discipline.
2 Timothy 3:14 – 17 reminds us that the Word teaches, reproves, corrects, and trains us. Sounds a lot like discipline.
Hebrews 12:7 – 11 tells us that it is God’s purpose to discipline us to share His holiness.
The two, discipline and the Word of God are tightly, inseparably linked. Should we choose to diminish our time in the Word, we are choosing to resist, hate God’s discipline.
