Disciplining For Our Own Good

As a meek child, I was always afraid of being disciplined by my parents.  As an adult, I am always doing what pleases others and avoiding those who hurt me. 

These days, I want to please God because I am fearful of God’s punishment.  This morning reading was Hebrew’s 12:4-12.

“My Son, think of the Lord’s training as important. Do not lose hope when He corrects you.  The Lord trains those He loves.  He punishes everyone He accepts as a Son. (Proverbs 3 11:12)

Put up with your hard times.  God uses them to train you….

No training seems pleasant at the time.  In fact, it seems painful.  But later on it produces a harvest of godliness and peace.  It does that for those who have been trained by it.”

    I don’t know about others, I’m sure glad now my parents disciplined me as a kid. Otherwise, with my hyperactive nature, goodness knows where I’d have ended up now!
