TRAINING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS – I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.” Sound familiar? Well, today on License to Parent, Trace Embry talks about the effects of discipline, and points out that the saying is not, “This is going to harm me or you.”
True discipline can hurt; but, it will never harm. It’s designed to help, heal, and strengthen the recipient. Pain, whether it’s emotional, relational, spiritual, physical or otherwise, often comes as the result of discipline. Hebrews 12: 11 says, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Train your children through a disciplined life. Trust God. And the truth of God’s Word will prove itself faithful, rewarding you and yours with a harvest of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
