Scrip for today: PDCP-05/28/14-Discipline is a good thing

Posted on Updated on

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. (Hebrews 12:11 NIV)

Initially, at the very moment of receiving, then experiencing a severe and strong instructive reprimand of corrective chastening, it’s not going to be enjoyable, agreeable, nor in anyway pleasant, but excruciatingly difficult, exacting, seeming unreasonable, perhaps even grossly excessive and extortionate. After awhile though, with the passing of time, it becomes quite apparent, because of what is brought into existence, as a direct result of The Lord’s chastening, that it shall yield a veritable wonderful supply of upright, morally excellent, virtuous righteous living, free from strife, anxiety and dissension, characterized by harmony and tranquillity, for all those who choose to allow the instruction of The Lord to impact them to their core, developing in them the practice of righteous behavior. (Hebrews 12:11 PDCP)
