Discipline – introduction and bible study guide

The subject of Discipline can be a very controversial topic.

A persons perspective on discipline is molded in large part by ownership.God has much to say about discipline; not limiting his instruction to the younger child alone, but to the older one too. He also addresses the methods earthly fathers use versus His. Lastly, God introduces His reasons for His discipline versus the man-centered reasons for discipline.

God desires our becoming familiar with His approach of discipline, that we might grow in wisdom and knowledge. The question becomes, “Who do we belong to?”
