“Our human parents disciplined us for a little while, as it seemed best to them, but God does it for our benefit so that we can share his holiness.”
Hebrews 12.10 CEB
Suffering should be seen as God’s discipline, because he loves us. He always works for our benefit. What he does for us is far above and beyond what our human parents did.
How is God’s disciplining me right now? Am I aware that I ought to use my difficulties to grow and become more like God? Am I sure that God does all for my benefit?
