Learning from Discipline
Discipline is rough stuff. I didn’t like giving it when my kids were young but sometimes they needed it – more than once. I found this Latin phrase the other day: In Loco Parentis: Kids can drive their parents crazy. And I think…I’ll bet my heavenly Father feels the same way when I spurn his discipline. So for all God’s children. “Besides, we have experienced discipline from our earthly fathers and we respected them; shall we not submit ourselves all the more to the Father of spirits and receive life?” (Heb. 12:9) Ask God to help you embrace His discipline today – and learn from it.
