“because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
No discipline is fun or pleasant. Everyone would like to believe in the lie that if they are loved then they would not be disciplined or chastened but that is far from the truth. Discipline is necessary in life.
Love disciplines. Love speaks up and speak out when you are wrong. It does not allow you to indulge in bad behavior or engage in negative activities without consequences. Loves disciplines therefore when you receive discipline from God be encouraged. When you are being disciplined by Him know that it is because His love for you draws Him to do so. Just as you would never doubt your mothers love for you due to her discipline, so you also ought not to doubt Gods love because of His discipline. He is a great God. A good Father who does what any good Father will do and more. Remember in all things that His discipline equals love and not hate, and as such accept it with a grateful and cheerful heart.
