In the midst of a loving relationship we can experience God’s wrath.
God disciplines us.
God does so to redirect us from our sinful self-destructive path back onto a journey of joy and peace. The Bible explains that God wouldn’t be a loving God if there was no discipline: “My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline, but don’t be crushed by it either.
It’s the child he loves that he disciplines; the child he embraces, he also corrects.
God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children.
You and I can learn to become more loving. We can teach one another to be more loving. Only through humbly admitting our unloving side can we really find help, healing and wholeness.
That’s what the fear of God does, it allows our brokenness to draw us closer to God in dependence and interdependently closer to other people.
This is a treasure worth more than gold.
