Hebrews 12:11 esv


When we were children discipline was an ugly word.  
As adults some of us still think of it as something awful.  
Perhaps we feel this way because we have in our minds
that discipline is only meant to punish us for wrong doing.

However, there is more to discipline than punishment.
It develops and improves skills, trains, educates, and prepares
us for greater things.    
Yes, discipline can hurt but it has a purpose.

In God’s plan and purpose discipline readies us
 for whatever is to come next and gives us peace 
when facing the future and its challenges.

 How do you define discipline?
Have you seen the benefits of God’s discipline in your life?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. Good discipline is basically a reflection of love towards us. And God’s discipline is loving kindness. Who can refuse to such discipline for my rewards is peace. God night, Patricia.
