Earthly chastening

Hebrews 12:7 says, "If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?"

The Lord Jesus Christ disciplines us who are His children when we go astray from His will! Earthly fathers are expected to discipline their own children when they do not do what is right! They are commanded by God to discipline their children in love, or it becomes worthless!

We also teach our children to avoid touching the fire, long before they try. Our Father may also choose to provide education long before our transgressions. Pity the person whose life appears easy.
