God Loves And Corrects

Key Verse

“For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.” Proverbs 3:12

Text — Proverbs 3:11-12


Dave, though intelligent performed poorly in his studies because he spent too much time watching cartoons. To help him give more time to his studies, his dad stopped him from watching cartoons except on weekends when he was done with his assignments and house chores. Dave’s performance in his studies got better and he later became the best student in his class. Correction comes to make us better.

God corrects those He loves. He corrects our wrong behaviour, thoughts and desires in order to direct us back to the path of righteousness so we can be like His dear Son, Jesus Christ. God corrects us through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, through His word that we read and hear and also uses our parents, pastors, teachers and other ways to correct us. Do not reject or argue with God’s word and His Spirit, rather ask Him to help you to be humble, repent and obey His word. Do not get angry or fight back when your teachers and parents correct you. Although correction sometimes might be painful, the little pain would soon be forgotten and turn to blessing if you endure it like it happened to Dave in the story.
