"And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as his children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of the LORD’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you. For (when it is necessary) the LORD disciplines those He loves, and he chastises each one He accepts as His child." [Hebrews 12:5,6]

"I correct and discipline everyone I love. Take this seriously, and change the way you think and act." [Revelation 3:19]
