"He who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly." - Proverbs 13:24

"For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives." - Hebrews 12:6

Chastening is always despised and no one likes chastening. But one way God shows His love for us is by chastening us when we go against His will and continue to do it in spite of His warnings. A child of God out of fellowship will experience chastening but use the moment to return to God and cling to Him. As someone said "I cling to my dad's feet when he disciplines because it hurts less." Let's draw near to God and not give the devil the opportunity to separate us from Him that will call for chastening.
Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
