A Father’s Discipline by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/21/12

“Lately, my husband and I aren’t seeing eye to eye on how to discipline our daughter. I think he’s afraid of hurting her feelings. I tell him that if he really loves her, he’ll make her do what’s right. Sometimes I just wish God would make my husband and me agree! Why can’t God just take away the conflict?”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sometimes God allows conflict and difficulties in our lives for the same reason you want to discipline your daughter—He loves you. No wise parent gives his child everything they want, and God is the wisest Father ever. He allows us to go through pain sometimes because He loves us and wants us to grow.

Hebrews 12 tells us that “God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.”

If you’re facing something difficult, let me encourage you—that means God loves you. So seek Him, trust Him, and learn from Him as a loving, heavenly Father.
