Scriptures for the Day – November 17, 2019

Hebrews 12:7-11

7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons.

For what son is not disciplined by his father?

8 If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline),

then you are illegitimate children and not true sons.

9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who

disciplined us and we respected them for it.

How much more should we submit

to the Father of our spirits and live!

10 Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best;

but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.

11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.

Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness

and peace for those who have been trained by it.
