My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.”
Discipline can take many forms. Parents have a great responsibility to effectively and consistently discipline their children – within the context of love. If our Father in heaven disciplines those He loves, then Godly parents should also discipline their children out of love for them. We should consider carefully how to discipline; full of grace, forgiveness, and Godly instruction. It is no mistake that the word discipline and disciple look so similar, because it takes discipline to be a disciple. Being a disciple of Christ means the Lord’s loving discipline is coming your way always.
