God’s Discipline

No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. Hebrews 12:11 NIV

When I was younger, I had a problem with authority. When we are younger, we see someone correcting us as them just trying to be a boss. Even as a kid, when we were disciplined by our parents, it hurt.

God corrects us when he needs to. Sometimes, we do something and it hurts Him seeing us making mistakes. It isn’t just correction, it is training us. Remember, a mistake is never a mistake if you learn from it.

God does not correct us to be mean. He is doing it to bring us back into the light of Christ. Afterward, there is a peaceful harvest. Praise be to God.
