Discipline Is God’s Purposeful Love

Cover of Morning Light

Today's Devotional

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten, Rev. 3:19. 

That thou may’st pray for them thy foes are given,
That thou may’st look to God I bring thee pain,
I bring thee cares that thou may’st look to Heaven,
I bring thee fretful friends that thou may’st train
Thy soul to patience; what thou deemest gain
When closest wreathing chains around thy soul,
I rend from thine own bleeding heart in twain,
That He who bought may have thy spirit whole,
Spurs that may give thee pain but urge thee to the goal.
