CULTIVATE OUR FAITH
 
God disciplines us because He loves us. He wants us to stay on the narrow path, which leads to being a part of His harvest in heaven.  
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
We know that through our baptism we are claimed by God as sons and daughters. The death and resurrection of Jesus makes us co-heirs with him to the glory of everlasting life in heaven. The letter of the Hebrews, reminds us however, that the Lord disciplines His children. Like any loving parent, God disciplines, corrects, and tries to show us the narrow gate to enter.
 
We, like most children, don't like the discipline at first. We may try to test God's limits. We may think we can do whatever we want and not be discovered. We may even fool ourselves into believing that God will not discipline us when we need it. As the letter to the Hebrew so aptly states, "At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet it later brings peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it." God disciplines us because He loves us. He wants us to stay on the narrow path, which leads to being a part of His harvest in heaven.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Where do you find this "discipline" in your life? We must cultivate our faith, allow the Lord to "prune" back our pride, selfishness, and ego.  Then the Lord will help us "weed" out the sin in our lives so that we can produce good, abundant fruit.
