Memory Verse Monday

 for the LORD disciplines the one He loves,
    just as a father, the son he delights in. (
Proverbs 3:12, Holman)

We often get mad at the Lord when bad things come upon us, but it really is an act of love.  He needs to discipline us to mold us into the people that we should be.  As mothers and fathers, we cannot let our children get away with doing things they shouldn’t.  We discipline them so that they learn right from wrong.  They must learn that certain things can hurt them.  We discipline them so that they will become better people.  The Lord does the same thing.  If we go down the wrong path, and we belong to the Lord, we will get “spanked”.  The Lord does this out of love, ultimate love, not to punish for unfounded reasons.  He wants us to do no wrong and stay on the right path. Just as we love our children through the discipline, the Lord loves us.
