Pain Now Equals Peace Later
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
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 is to raise a child who is well adjusted, loving, and has a healthy outlook on life, then discipline is not only needed, it is 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 children the gifts of righteousness and peace for their lives? I would imagine every mom’s answer would be 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 hard. Give me discernment to see the ramifications of my children’s actions while they are young. I confess, Lord, that I will love my children so much as not to skip over this important part of being a parent. Amen
