Do Better and Be Better


If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?
Hebrews 12:7

Pastor Tony Evans advises modern parents to remember the importance of teaching their children to honor and respect them, and to earn that respect by becoming models for their kids. “When my dad disciplined me for acting up in school,” wrote Tony, “as much as I disliked it, I grew in my respect for him. He had given me plenty of warning that misbehaving in class would not be tolerated. He had always followed through on his warnings in the past. And by being consistent that day by spanking and grounding me, he showed me once again that he was a man of his word.

In the same way, God has given us a Book letting us know how to do better and be better. When we consistently disobey Him, we can expect His discipline. He allows discomfort to come into our lives in some way to develop the qualities we need. This isn’t a withdrawal of His love but an application of His love. God’s discipline is evidence that we are His children whom He loves dearly.

Almighty God…Create within us clean hearts, and renew right spirits, that we may do better and be better.
Peter Marshall
