When we are disciplined we are being groomed to be disciples. We are reminded not to disdain the discipline of the Lord nor lose heart when he reproves you; For whom the Lord loves, he disciplines (12:5-6).
We can all look back and see the fruit that discipline bore in our lives. It might have protected us from danger or assisted us in growing in our love for God and our family. Discipline is an ultimate act of God's love. He desires for us to discipline our mind,body, and spirit to give honor, praise and glory to his Holy Name.
When we lead a disciplined life-our life becomes simpler. We have rules and order that guide our behavior based on the covenant given to us by our loving Father. We have an awesome God who cannot help himself to discipline out of his unconditional Love for us.
