Tuesdays For Timothy Moms: Hebrews 12:7-11

Discipline and teaching our kids to believe our words and obey them is a theme I'm learning to hear God's way and learning to implement God's way.

This scripture comes to mind:

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:7-11)
What are your meditations on this verse?

I look forward to hearing from you Timothy Moms! Remember to leave a link to your TFTM's post on Mr. Linky below.
I'm praying for our kids and for us as we seek to lead them to Christ!

I have been meaning to join in on your Tim-Mom challenges since they have started. . . .

Praying for you and I am challenged by what God is leading you to share with your fellow moms.

Blessings,

There's not enough in my brain to post but no chastening is easy for the chastener either. I had to take my daughter to task this morning and I feel as though I'm the one beat up!
