When we are growing up and are disciplined by our parents,their way of doing things are very much misunderstood by us.It’s only later that we learn it was for our good.
Our Father in Heaven through chastening his children does the same thing with us.When we are newborn Christians it is written: “As newborn babes,desire the sincere milk of the word,that ye may grow thereby”.(1 Peter 2:2) When we grow in the Lord learn to be chastened by him we soon learn that he has instilled in us his character!
When we grow through Faith and knowledge of the Lord we are better able to discern both good and evil,and many times that is our saving grace.“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness:for he is a babe.But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil”.(Hebrews 5:13,14)……(Hebrews 12:11)……(Deuteronomy 8:5)……(Job 5:17,18).
So let’s turn from following the way of the world and it’s mold of what’s important to serve the Living and True God who teaches us that wisdom of him is of greater worth than all this world has to offer.The Love of the Lord is shown through the chastening of his children.“My son,despise not the chastening of the Lord;neither be weary of his correction:For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth;even as a Father the son in whom he delighteth”.(Proverbs 3:11,12).
God Loves his children so much,that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him will not perish,but have everlasting life!
