Being chastised by our parents is not something we looked forward to, when we have done something wrong. But, after the chastisement, we hear the words; “I love you”.
It’s the same with our Father. We are God’s children, and He chastise us because he loves us. Although we may not like it, know that all chastisement is for our good.
Hebrews 12:9 (KJV) – furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Proverbs 3:12 (KJV) – for whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Hebrews 12:11 (KJV) – now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
