Embrace God’s Training 

 If you love learning, you love the discipline that goes with it—how shortsighted to refuse correction! 



Proverbs 12:1


7-8God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children. This trouble you’re in isn’t punishment; it’s training, the normal experience of children. Only irresponsible parents leave children to fend for themselves. Would you prefer an irresponsible God?


We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live?


10-11 While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best. At the time, discipline isn’t much fun. It always feels like it’s going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it’s the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God.

10-11 當我們還是孩子的時候,我們的父母以他們認為是最好的方法教育我們。但是上帝是用對我們而言最好的方式,訓練我們活出上帝的聖潔美善。在受管教時,沒什麼樂趣可言,似乎總是有違個人的意願。但後來的報償卻相當可觀,因為受過良好訓練的人,會發現自己與上帝建立了成熟的關係。

Hebrews 12:7-11
