-Proverbs 3:11-12 (NIV)
God is watching over us in a similar way. God may discipline or rebuke us, but it is for our own good! God loves us and He wants what is best for us in our lives. Sometimes we make choices that do not follow His plan for our lives. When He needs to, God will get our attention. We should accept His loving discipline, remembering that it is for our own good!
Listen to God and appreciate His discipline because it is for your own good!
Thank You for loving me and being willing to discipline me in Your loving way. Help me to remember that Your discipline is for my own good. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
