How Do You React To Chastening?

“Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects;
Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. (Job 5:17, NKJV)

Christian Links Vol 2 Issue 26Happy, because the correction is designed to bring him into paths of blessedness and peace.
Happy, because there is no unnecessary severity in it.
Happy, because the chastisement is not so much against us, as against our most cruel enemies—our sins.
Happy, because we have abundant words of consolation.
Happy, because whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth.
Happy, because our light affliction is but for a moment. – George Bowen


Lord God, help us to understand that You chasten those You love. We desire to respond appropriately to You correction. Please guide us and correct us according to Your great love and perfect will. In Jesus name, Amen!
