Do not despise His training

I don’t know why we have a hard time reconciling a God of love with discipline. As if discipline equates to being unloving. But I say to you… to not discipline is to not love.

“He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.”

Proverbs 13:24 NKJV

I think discipline sounds negative to many people because some disciplinarians are not loving. But God is the source of all love. He doesn’t discipline us to punish us or to be harsh or express angry toward us. He is training us up. Teaching us from right and wrong. Producing in us a morally strong individual.

To despise His training is to despise wisdom and knowledge.

Do not we correct our own children to train them up? To produce in them the righteousness of God?

Many times over the Bible speaks about discipline. Train up your child and in the same breath accept the Lord’s training. It is always to your benefit.

As it concerns our children. Always move in love. Let our discipline have a point. Let us not be harsh to our children or try and break their spirits.

Let us resemble our Father and always discipline in LOVE.
