“If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes, if
they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands, I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging; but I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness.”
Following the Heavenly Father example, children need to be disciplined when they disobey, yet, love remains. Discipline and love work together, it is not “either or”. Discipline must be motivated by love and love is the source of strength to discipline.
