BUT... God's discipline is always good for us. (Hebrews 12:10)

For our earthly fathers disciplined us for years,
doing the best they knew how.
God's discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in His holiness. No discipline is fun while it is happening—it’s painful!
Afterward there will be peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
Hebrews 12:10
You have to be a parent to understand this verse. Discipline is hard on both the one delivering it and receiving it. Often it is easier just to not administer it. BUT the result is never good when we avoid correcting bad behavior. God loves us and so He must discipline us. It seems the world we live in today wants to put God in their little box as just a loving God and go about doing whatever pleases them BUT when things don’t please them they want to ask what happened to that loving God? Wake UP. God loves us so HE must discipline us.
