"My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in."
Proverbs 3:11-12
Sometimes we need to be disciplined by the Father. Not all discipline is a negative thing.
Our God loves us, but He will also discipline us when we need it just as our earthly father does. Sometimes we need to be bent over the knee and spanked and sometimes we just need a pat on the hand or a good talking to. But whatever it is, God does it with love and because He loves us is why it is done.
Read through the bible and let the words penetrate you and change you.
If you don't have a reading plan, try reading the Proverbs each day. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs (and usually 31 days in a month). Get in the habit of reading a chapter a day. It's a good habit to start.
Ask God to correct you and discipline you so that.....Yes...You become more like HIM.
Worship the Father today by reading His story, the Bible.

Enjoy your day.
