PR30 – Day 3 (February 25)

Word of the day…DISCIPLINE.

A good father discipline’s the children He loves.  I know He loves me, therefore I know He disciplines me.  I am afraid to even think about where I would be without His loving discipline. It isn’t the most pleasant thing to go through, however the ending outcome is us looking a bit more refined, and looking more like Jesus.  Is it worth it?  I say yes.  When I look around at children who are not disciplined at home, I see rebellion, and lots of it.  It makes me sad that these young people would choose certain actions that only cause pain to themselves and others.  A life without discipline is a life of pain and hurt to yourself and others.

When I discipline my seventh and eighth graders at school, I remind them,

“When Ms. C disciplines you, she still cares about you.”  I guess we all need that reminder that discipline is for our good and comes from people who truly love us.

“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of His reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom He loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.”

Proverbs 3:11-12
