Discipline Is Not Rejection | Psalm 94:8-15

Today's Passage: Psalm 94:8-15
Key Verses: Psalm 94:12-15

Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law; you grant them relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked. For the LORD will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance. Judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it.

"Blessed is the one you discipline." Doesn't feel like it, does it? But it's true. Discipline is a lifesaver, not only for us but also for those around us.

Discipline will save the life of a child intent on playing by a dangerous street. It is teaching in the most loving form. Discipline demonstrates a love and care that shows we are engaging in our children's lives. Discipline addresses a subject that is harmful in the present and, left unchecked, may be devastating in the future. 

Don't mistake discipline for rejection. Rejection ignores the danger. Discipline gets involved. Rejection drives a person away. Discipline draws us near. Rejection ignores. Discipline cares enough to get our attention and provides us safety.

Father, discipline is painful; but thank you for loving us so much that you are willing to work in our lives, get our attention, and bring us back from our dangerous pursuits. Thank you for blessing us with your discipline. In Jesus' name. Amen.
