Proverb to Ponder

Proverb 5:11-14

11 At the end of your life you will groan,
when your flesh and body are spent.

12 You will say, "How I hated discipline!
How my heart spurned correction!

13 I would not obey my teachers
or listen to my instructors.

14 I have come to the brink of utter ruin
in the midst of the whole assembly."

I know this entire proverb is talking about adultery, but it doesn't stop me from thinking about my students, every time I read it.

Have I ever mentioned that I used to be a 7th grade teacher at an inner city school? Many of my darling children spurned corrected and would not obey or listen to any of us...

I hope some of them figure it out before it's too late.
