Did you ever hear this from your mother or father: “this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you?” Discipline is given out of love…. God hates sin and we are all sinners, so sometimes he must discipline us, BUT, in the midst of God’s punishments he shows mercy and love. Even when we are bearing the consequences of sin He is walking with us. Titus 3:4-5 says “But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, not by works of rightousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” Don’t forget to thank Him today for his endless love – He loves us even when we have failed him. God bless you today!
