Wednesday, June 6

Those whom Jehovah loves he disciplines, in fact, he scourges everyone whom he receives as a son.—Heb. 12:6.

 

You may have heard someone say something like this, ‘I never fully appreciated the discipline that I received from my parents until I had children of my own.’ When we gain more experience in life, we may see discipline in a new light and start to view it as Jehovah does, as a manifestation of love. (Heb. 12:5, 11) Yes, out of love for his children, Jehovah patiently molds us. He wants us to be wise and happy and to love him in return. (Prov. 23:15) He takes no pleasure in our suffering; nor does he want us to die as “children of wrath,” which is the prospect inherited from Adam. (Eph. 2:2, 3) As “children of wrath,” we once displayed many qualities that displease God, perhaps even some beastlike traits! Yet, thanks to Jehovah’s molding, we changed; we became more like lambs.—Isa. 11:6-8; Col. 3:9, 10. w16.06 1:7, 8

When we are disciplined, it confirms Jehovah’s love for us and his desire for us to stay on the path to gain everlasting life. Jehovah always has our best interest at heart. The Watchtower for the last two weeks discussed how Jehovah disciplines to the “proper degree”. It is never demeaning or harsh. Even though it can be painful, we always want to heed Bible counsel because it allows us to grow spiritually.
