Originally blogged April 22, 2019. What Spiritual lessons should we be taking away from what the world has been going through this past few weeks?
Hebrews 12:7,8 – Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – There are two kinds of discipline. Discipline to bring correction and discipline to train and strengthen.
My Advice – As a Son, you will be disciplined. Welcome it as a sign of true “sonship.” Make sure you know which type it is and act accordingly: ask for forgiveness or ask to learn whatever lesson is being taught.
