Oil Painting by J.M.R.Larman.
He who spares the rod
hates his son
but he who loves him
is careful to discipline him.
This does not mean that we should go about hitting our children with a rod until they cower before us. It does mean that we must discipline them in a way that they will understand not to do that bad thing again. As children of God did you know that God disciplines us? Because He loves us He is constantly correcting us, that is how it should be with us and our natural children. They must not be allowed to do just as they like, when and how they like, neither can we in God’s Kingdom. Today let us rejoice that Our Father in Heaven loves us so much that He disciplines us with love.
From the book ‘Drink from the Cup’by J.M.R.Larman.
Being disciplined by our Parents is not a joyful thing but it is meant to teach us something.
Well if we do not listen or change our ways we go round and round doing the same thing until at last we decide that it is not worth aggregating people or friends.
We have to stop wanting our own way if we are doing something wrong.
Today let us think before we do something awful.
Let us stop so that we need not get chastised by our parents or friends or even chastised from our Heavenly Father for committing some awful sin.
Also we may like to think how best to chastise our children, whether they be young or older. Sometimes they still need us to correct them but mostly with love.
Have a lovely Day.
