The Goodness of Godly Discipline
Passage: Proverbs 3:11–3:12
When you hear the word chastisement or discipline, what immediately comes to mind? Whatever your experience may have been, I think we call all agree, in the moment, it didn’t feel good. God's discipline doesn’t always feel good, but there is goodness in Godly discipline.
There are two very important lessons King Solomon wants his son to know:
- How to respond to the LORD’s discipline.
- The LORD’s heart, in Godly discipline.
I pray our response to the text today would be: that we see, value and appreciate the goodness of Godly discipline, because it’s always rooted in Gods love!
