Those He Loves

Hebrews 12:6 -- "For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child."

Even as Christians, our road is not easy. There are challenges, tests and ways of the world to constantly overcome.The Lord loves us and wants to bless us, but just like with earthly parents that is not accomplished by giving us everything we want.

We, as children of God, need boundaries just like we put on our children. It is in their best interest, even when they thing otherwise. Just as we want to see our children learn and grow in their own identity, our Lord wants the same for us.

There are times of blessing, times of struggle and times of disciple. Our Lord wants to see us learn and grow closer to Him. He does this because He loves us and He wants the best for us. No matter what, God loves you and He protects His children.
