"My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights." ESV
The Lord teaches us through the Holy Spirit, His Word, and mature Christians. He is faithful to get us back on the right path when we stray. He works with us through discipline until we are obedient to Him. Sometimes this is not a pleasant thing, but it tells us that He loves us and cares about us as a loving parent with a child.
Heavenly Father, how we thank You that You love us enough to discipline us so that we stay on the narrow path that leads to eternal life. Help us to learn those things we need in order to keep walking with You. We pray in Jesus name, Amen.
