Pastor Mark Tiefel defines the word "admonition" as it is used in Scripture and the importance of it in our lives. This is not a popular word in our world today, but the word has the idea of giving information to correct or change our lives for the better (from God's perspective). This is one of the priorities which God has given to parents in raising their children, just as God does for us. This is viewed as arrogant in our society, but something that God does to us and we do for one another in love. God instructs us through the hearing and reading of His Word. As Christians, God has called us to admonish one another in love, it is part of our calling as His children and our faithful witness of our Savior.
