"...Do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves..."
In the same way, God’s discipline is good news for us: it means we belong to Him. He disciplines us because we are His. He is the author of our faith, but also the finisher of it, and He knows the kind of discipline that will get us to where He wants us to be. “God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness” (v.10). This ongoing process of sanctification and discipline isn’t always fun. It is tough love. But it is indeed love, and it’s from a Father who loves us and calls us His own.
YOU DON'T DISCIPLINE OTHER PEOPLE'S KIDS BECAUSE THEY DON'T BELONG TO YOU. GOD DISCIPLINES THOSE WHO BELONG TO HIM!
