The Daily Nosh – Hebrews 12:11
Now all discipline seems painful at the moment – not joyful. But later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (TLV) Hebrews 12:11
Nosh: The purpose of God’s discipline in the present is that the pain associated with His correction be instructive and transformative in making us better, stronger and more successful in the future. If we embrace His discipline, it will yield an understanding of right and wrong which will bring a harvest of peace and success into our lives. Rejecting God’s correction will inevitably lead to a life characterized by increasing disorder, stress and confusion.
