Hebrews 12:7 ” Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?”

Discipline is earnest correction which leads to education.  As parents, we always wish our kids wouldn’t have to learn things the hard way.  So training and instruction is for their benefit, not us just trying to be mean.  The same goes for our Heavenly Father.  We learn much from adversity…we discover just how strong we are, and are able to realize the true depth of God’s love and mercy for us .  Proverbs 13:24 says, “He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.”   Remember that our loving and ever watchful Heavenly Father is wanting only the best for us when hardships head our way.
