1. No revelation of the importance of discipline.
Ang mga taong walang disiplina, malayo sa paglago.
5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[a]
7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 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.
2. Unable to see the importance of spiritual authority
Those who do not recognize the value of their spiritual parents feel they are orphans. God chooses for you.
3. They don’t know their sweet spot
4. They don’t know the next steps
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
If you want to grow, the first step is to know Him.
Are you preparing yourself? Your success/ growth requires preparation.
Thought for the day: Akala ng mga tao wala silang spiritual problem dahil may religion sila.
