Truth or Consequenses~Makes Sense To Me

Have you ever wondered how you could possibly delight the Lord? How you, all by yourself, could bring Him pleasure.  David, a man after God’s own heart knew and shares the answer…

…the LORD’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love. Psalms 147:11

Wow…Fear the Lord and put your hope in His unfailing love…Sounds easy right? Obviously not…

Today we often remove the focus from fear as it has such a negative connotation and instead we focus on the God’s love. But as with everything there should be a healthy balance. We should not forget that while God loves us He also expects us to be attentive to His commands.  In addition, we should remember there will be consequences for those who fail to follow His instructions.

Think about it, because we as parents want to protect our children from harm we often have to utilize discipline to enforce the concepts we are trying to instill in our kids. God is no different!!! Through His word He conveys His expectations and when we are not yielding to those expectations we leave Him with no alternative but to use discipline.

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.”  Hebrews 12:6

Now, I don’t know about you but before I disciplined my children I always reminded them of the rules and gave them a warning…If ______(the behavior) doesn’t stop you can expect_______(the discipline).

God establishes the expectation and the discipline…
