Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
We all know (as parents) what our children would be like if we didn't discipline them or if we just handed them every little thing they wanted. Well, they would be little brats. I'm sure you remember little
For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.
I told Lilli that I discipline her, because I love her. She says, "Mommy that doesn't make sense." I just chuckled and said the Lord created us and He knows us, and He disciplines me as well.
It's funny, because God laid on my heart to blog about refinement. Well, I opened my computer and an e-mail pops up from my husband with a video. I think they do a better job than I do. Please watch but grab tissues if you are anything like me :)
