Devo God’s love and discipline
Proverbs 1:7 (NIV)
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Hebrews 12:9 (NIV)
9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live!
I loved my father dearly. I also had a healthy fear of him. I knew if I got out of line he would discipline me. He used methods some would call abuse today, but real abuse is not disciplining your child. This world calls good evil and evil good. It leads to destruction and death. It takes away life. Discipline gives life, wisdom and joy. I never feared my father when I was doing right. He loved me dearly and when he had to discipline me I could see I hurt him deeply. Hurting my father in this way was far more painful than the punishment. So many people don’t have a healthy fear and respect for God. They don’t love Him or they would not hurt Him. They despise His discipline and instruction. They say it’s ok to sin he will forgive. It is never ok to sin. He is a forgiving God, but He discipline’s the son He loves. If you have no fear of Him you will. In this life or the one to come. Better now than latter.
