Scripture Reading

Proverbs 3:11, 12

Lesson 5: The Wisdom of Godly Discipline

Neither psychology nor sociology furnishes the most effective model for discipline. As in every instance of wise living, the model is God (Prov. 3:11, 12). He disciplines His children, using the right balance of righteousness and love, holiness and grace. Further, His model is always appropriate. It was applicable to believers in the Old Testament period, and it is also applicable to New Testament believers.[1]

Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:


Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:

  • Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
  • The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
