For a command is a lamp, teaching is a light, and corrective discipline is the way to life.
Proverbs 6:23 HCSB
Are you willing to learn? Gaining knowledge and learning from those wiser than you is described as a lamp and light. Being able to see your path is easier than walking blindly. You are much less likely to leave your path if it is well lit. To top it off, be sure to have others in your life that will help correct you when you veer off of your path. It is the way to life.
