“God’s wounds cure, sin’s kisses kill.” (William Gurnall) - Daily Bible Reflections February 4,2015



LOVING DISCIPLINE

At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it. – Hebrews 12:11

       When it comes to child rearing, there are countless styles and ways that you will read in the plethora of parenting books. There are those who say you should never hit a child. There are others who say that spanking may be necessary, depending on the situation. I read somewhere that you shouldn’t force a child to share with others, while sharing is a virtue we all want our kids to learn.
       It’s not easy being a parent these days. Every day, I pray for the grace and patience to raise our kids the right way. Because I want only the best for them, I don’t want them to grow up spoiled. So, when I don’t give them what they want, they throw a tantrum and sometimes even call me “Bad Mama!” It stings, but I don’t give in if I know that what they want isn’t good for them.
       That’s how our God is. His commands are there not because He wants to give us a hard time but because it’s for our good.
       St. Paul said, “My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord or lose heart when reproved by him; for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines; he scourges every son he acknowledges” (Hebrews 12:5-6). Rissa Singson Kawpeng (justbreatherissa@gmail.com)

Reflection: “God’s wounds cure, sin’s kisses kill.” (William Gurnall)

Lord, help me to love Your discipline and see them as a loving Father’s way to guide us on the right paths. Amen.

St. Joseph of Leonissa, pray for us.
