Hebrews 12:11 – No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. In this study we will look at the connotations beyond discipline and grasp the promise embedded within the verse.
Proverbs 11:7 -When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing. Solomon here departs from his norm and emphasizes on the same point rather than use an antithesis to parallel his point. In this study we will look at the relevance of this emphasis, and ponder a little on the Christian hope.
