1 Timothy 4:4-5 EVS "For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer."Who would have thought it?! Years ago, I was disciplined by my parents for some unbecoming behavior, and today, I am grateful for their discipline! Today's verse says to us that everything created by God is good and not to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving...! I would never have thought as a young boy to thank God for the discipline of my parents but older now, I see the wisdom that was given to me by those times of discipline. And thanking God for those things in our life, yes even discipline, is truly receiving all things of God with thanksgiving. We may not realize it at the time but God does love us and wants the best for His Children, so when He disciplines us, let us be thankful! I know, hard to do when we are going through it but one day, we can be thankful, maybe today's the day! Be thankful - peace, tom
