Instruction is life
Instruction gives direction based upon biblical knowledge. Obey her, and preserve your life.
Those who embrace her commands are full and live; those who ignore her will be left wanting, and will ultimately die the second death.
Proverbs 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
