A Daily Word - Feb. 12

February 12

For whom the LORD loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights … For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes those he accepts as his children." - Proverbs 3:12; Hebrews 12:6 NLT

We are to discipline our own children. That’s why the promises of God include His discipline of us. The Father’s discipline is a mark of the Father’s love. A child without discipline may grow up in anarchy and insecurity, the feeling that mom or dad didn’t care enough to go to the trouble to provide discipline. Our Heavenly Father loves us absolutely, and we have the security of knowing He will set safe boundaries for us in the form of discipline.
