Because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
When you do something wrong, only those who truly love and care for you will try to correct you, so that you do not suffer terrible consequences! Your parents’ discipline and correction will enable you to learn to accept God’s discipline as well, because God loves you the most in the world! He promises to love His children with the everlasting love! How blessed and wise are those who understand this truth!
Your parents have rules at home for you to follow, in order to teach you to make wise decisions. This way when you grow up, you will have a blessed life. What kind of rules does your family have? You can also create rules together with your family.
After reading today’s Bible passage, you will receive wisdom to understand that discipline from God and your parents are due to love, and in an effort to protect and help you. Receiving wisdom can help us understand many things and bring us peace, love, and blessings. The value of wisdom is truly more than wealth!
Dear Heavenly Father, I understand that the reason my parents discipline me is because they love me and want to protect me. Sometimes when they discipline me, they may hurt me because they are feeling frustrated. Please help us communicate openly and help me to learn and change so that we can all learn to be wise and love each other. In Jesus’Name I pray, Amen!
