Proverbs 3:11-12 – DISCIPLINE
There are times when the discipline of God in our lives is necessary.
He does not discipline us to hurt us, but because he cares about us.
While not all trials are because we have sinned (Consider Job and James 1:2-4), there are times when the Father exercises discipline on his children.
THE CORRECTION OF GOD – …the chastening of the Lord…his correction…
THE CONSENT OF HIS CHILDREN – …despise not…neither be weary…
THE COMPASSION OF THE FATHER – For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Compare Hebrews 12:5-11 and 1 Corinthians 11:27-32
