Proverbs 3:11-12 Love It Pay Attention When God Disciplines You!

Posted by Job on January 29, 2008

My son, do not despise the LORD’S discipline, and do not resent
his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father
the son he delights in.
NIV

Discipline is a mark of love. Many have gone astray in our
contemporary culture and misunderstood that. Unfortunately there has
been a philosophy of bringing up children which omits discipline. You
are to allow the child to do whatever he wishes, to indulge himself in
every way; but that does not show love, that creates endless potential
problems for your child in the future. True love in a parent expresses
itself in discipline, in setting boundaries. There is security in set
boundaries.

And the love of God for His children expresses itself in discipline.
God’s discipline is not a mark of His disfavor; it’s a mark of His
love. We need to be careful that we understand it that way. The
Scripture warns us against two wrong reactions to the discipline of
God. The first is despising it. The second is resenting it.

When God disciplines you, pay attention, don’t despise it, don’t
resent it, don’t get angry, don’t complain, but learn the lesson that
has to be learned and then the result will be blessing. The result will
be peace. The result will be spiritual progress and development,
because there’s no other way that God can teach us except by
discipline. That’s true in the natural too. A teacher who doesn’t
discipline really can’t teach. God is the great teacher, the great
Father. He disciplines us in His love. – Derek Prince
