Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die. Prv. 15:10

Father, thank you for your discipline and correction. I’d rather suffer the sting of being reminded of my waywardness than to suffer in anguish eternally separated from you. Thank you for being a loving Father who loves with tender love and care, but also who comforts with a rod and a staff. Amen.
