August 2013 Tabletalk
The August 2013 issue of Tabletalk examines the blessing of discipline. To use the words “blessing” and “discipline” in the same sentence sounds strange to our modern ears, but that is precisely why it is important to address the issue from a biblical perspective. Although Scripture speaks often about the goodness of godly discipline, many in our culture and even within our churches do not consider discipline to be a blessing. We think discipline conflicts with Christian liberty. We think discipline is a synonym for tyranny. In short, we think incorrectly. We forget that discipline begins with God and is grounded in His love for us, and we forget that all other forms of discipline reflect the loving discipline of God.
