Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
Lashes and wounds scour evil, and beatings cleanse the inmost parts. Yes, sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways. Faithful are the wounds of our Heavenly Father, but deceitful are the sinful kisses of the enemy. When we are being judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so we won't be condemned along with the world. We are developing a toughness, and it needs to be a constant of mind, a mind stayed on Christ.
Study 2 Sam. 7:14
