"And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? 'My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.'" ESV
None of us take too kindly to being disciplined, even when we deserve it. But, the Lord chooses to discipline us and to let us reap what we have sown. He does so to get us to a place where we will submit to His will. It is a good thing to be disciplined by the Lord. It proves we are His children and He is watching over us.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for disciplining us for those times we fail to do what is right. Help us to accept Your discipline and to remember that it brings us closer to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
