Act of Love

Today's reading: Proverbs 3:11-12

I have a tendency to focus on verse 11 (the discipline portion) of this passage, and did start there today as I prepared to write. But the words and message of verse 12 kept tugging at my heart--specifically the final phrase, "as a father the son in whom he delights." Even though I've read this passage numerous times before, I really hadn't stopped to fully consider how much God absolutely loves and delights in me as one of His children. When I returned to read the passage in its entirety again, having this fuller understanding of God's love for me then helped me to have an even better understanding of God's discipline.

So how did Proverbs 3:11-12 speak to your heart today? What impact has experiencing God's discipline had on your spiritual growth? Tami

Anything the Lord allows into my life is for my good, though it may not seem good to me in and of itself. That kind of love is real love--love that will look out for the best for the one we love.

We who love our children do discipline them. We want them to be safe, thoughtful, loving and caring individuals. They don't learn this from the world. I have learned to have faith in God's unfailing love for me even when I'm being disciplined or 'stretched'. I know He loves me because He uses circumstances to draw me closer to Him, He shows me a better way. I can't count the times I've asked Him 'okay, what do you want me to learn from this.' He's always faithful to answer.
