11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
It can be easy to despise Gods discipline. It can be easy to despise God when things go bad in our lives. We need Gods discipline in our lives or Satan will prevail.
When God disciplines us it means that it’s time to repent and ask him for forgiveness. It also means that we have fallen off God’s path and need to find our way back onto it.
It can be hard to know that God will rebuke us, but he rebukes us because he loves us. After God is done reproofing, he always pours favor on us and blesses us.
It’s better to be disciplined and punished by God then have to face an eternity in hell. Gods discipline is not punishment, it’s simply his way of showing us the errors of our ways and bringing us closer to him.
