For Whom The Lord Loves He Corrects

Share

2 Timothy 3:16-17  Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action),17  So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Proverbs 3:11-12  My son, do not despise or shrink from the chastening of the Lord [His correction by punishment or by subjection to suffering or trial]; neither be weary of or impatient about or loathe or abhor His reproof,12For whom the Lord loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.

Today’s Reflection: When you were growing up did your parents correct or bring discipline when you were disobedient? God word is profitable for instruction, reproof, conviction of sin, correction of error & discipline in obedience. It will also train us in righteousness, so that we will be equipped for every good work.  God tells us not to despise or shrink from the chastening of the Lord, for whom he loves he corrects. God doesn’t beat us over the head with a big stick. He lets the reading of his word show us our faults & flaws not to beat us down, but to show us how to overcome & have victory in our lives.
