Bible: Heb. 12:7-13
12:7 Endure your suffering 1 as discipline; 2 God is treating you as sons. For what son is there that a father does not discipline? 12:8 But if you do not experience discipline, 3 something all sons 4 have shared in, then you are illegitimate and are not sons. 12:9 Besides, we have experienced discipline from 5 our earthly fathers 6 and we respected them; shall we not submit ourselves all the more to the Father of spirits and receive life? 7 12:10 For they disciplined us for a little while as seemed good to them, but he does so for our benefit, that we may share his holiness. 12:11 Now all discipline seems painful at the time, not joyful. 8 But later it produces the fruit of peace and righteousness 9 for those trained by it. 12:12 Therefore, strengthen 10 your listless hands and your weak knees, 11 12:13 and make straight paths for your feet, 12 so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but be healed.
