Although discipline is painful, it brings a harvest of righteousness and peace.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time; instead, it's painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

As hard as discipline is to put into practice and as painful as it can be both for the mom and the child, the end goal must be kept in mind at all times. If the end goal of the mom is to raise a child who is well adjusted, loving and has a healthy outlook on life, then discipline is not only needed, but required. This verse in Hebrews tells us that even though discipline is painful, it brings a harvest of righteousness and peace. Do you want to give your child the gifts of righteousness and peace for their lives? I would imagine that every mom’s answer to that question would be a “yes”.  Choose to push past the pain of discipline and think of your end goal. 


Father, give me the strength to discipline my children even though it is difficult and hard. Give me discernment to see the ramifications of my child’s actions while they are young and how it will play out in their future. I pray Lord, I will love my children so much as to not skip over this important  part of being the parent.
