Don’t cause YHVH to treat you like a stubborn mule!

Psalm 32:8–9, Do not be like. When YHVH disciplines us, he would prefer that we respond to his gentle voice of correction such as mere look of his eye whether it be that he is showing his approbation or disapproval for what we are doing.

If we fail to respond to his slightest glance of correction, he may have no alternative but “to turn up the heat, so that we’ll see the light” by treating us like a stubborn mule, who needs the bridle and bit (and maybe even the quirt) to bring it back into line.
