Hebrews 12:7 NASB "It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?"It wasn't always laughter and joy! Today's Word speaks of discipline and how God deals with us as sons! I would love to say that life was always rosy and bliss but that's just not the truth. The reality of life is that there were times, many times when my dad had to be the discipline in my life. I can still remember those words "this will hurt me more than you!" as he pulled off his belt to set me straight! I didn't know what he really meant until I had children of my own, and when it was time to discipline them, it hurt me too! I am sure God feels the same way about us, His Children, when He disciplines us for our wrong doings. But I know that it is in love that we are set straight. Let us remember that when we are disciplined, we are loved! It may not feel like it at the time but later, if we learned the lesson, we will remember those times and be glad! peace, tom
