Day 171

by Rev Joel Yong

Proverbs 23:13-14
Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.

Discipline does not kill – it corrects.
The lack of it – according to this text- sends one’s soul to Sheol or Hell as we understand it. This happens because a lack of harsh correction causes one to go on the wrong path.

God disciplines us for this same purpose. Not to harm us but to help us.

The next time you feel His rod descending upon your life – thank Him for loving you enough to do so.
