I love the one year Bible blog. You often bring an insight that I've missed. Just wanted to comment on the verse in Proverbs today. As a pastor's wife for over 20 years, I've noticed that children do NOT receive much discipline. For the most part few parents discipline their children.

These two verses stood out to me today:
Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Luke 21: 34 Jesus says "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

All of us get weighed down by the anxieties or distractions of life that we forget the draw ourselves closer to GOD each day in trying times. I guess because of our human nature we try to deal with life the way we know the best rather than remembering GOD is there beside us to provide for us no matter.

This goes back to Mike's question: Do we disobey God in our lives today? Why do we do this?

I guess again we don’t force ourselves to remember GOD is present with us though we can’t see HIM. I bet if we could physically see HIM everyday like we see our bosses or church priest or anybody else who forces us to accomplish our goals for that day. We would be on our knees trying to pray and asking repentance for our sins each time we disobeyed HIM. I guess we should teach ourselves to remember GOD presence with us only because we are human and humans are creatures of habit and our minds can only fathom what we can touch, feel or see.

Physically abusive discipline is spectacular, and makes headlines, and rightfully disgusts us. But I think American society in 2009 errs on the side of not enough caring/not enough discipline.
