Bible: Heb 12:6-8

12:6For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son he accepts. 1 

12:7 Endure your suffering 2  as discipline; 3  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, 4  something all sons 5  have shared in, then you are illegitimate and are not sons.
