*CHASTENING- Correction; punishment for the purpose of reclaiming.
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
**GOD IS OUR FATHER AND HE LOVES US. THERE SHOULD BE A JOY IN THAT CORRECTION. NOT THAT IT ALWAYS FEELS GOOD AT THE TIME. WE NEED TO TAKE OUR CORRECTION FROM OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND LEARN FROM IT SO THAT OUR CORRECTION CAN ALSO BE USED AS A TESTIMONY FOR SOMEONE ELSE IN DUE TIME~BEARING “PEACEABLE FRUIT” TO SHARE! YES, HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT, TOO! ANOTHER BLESSING O BE COUNTED!**
