The word “discipline” is another word often misinterpreted. Sometimes it becomes synonymous with punishment, but that isn’t actually the case. Discipline is teaching through consistent example and instruction. A loving parent disciplines his children. God, as loving parent, also disciplines His children. Most of us can probably recall a difficult situation that resulted in growth or strength or another positive result. Consider those situations God’s discipline–God’s means of molding us into stronger, more empathetic, more usable vessels.
