Bible: Hebrews 12:11-15

12:11 Now all discipline seems painful at the time, not joyful. 1  But later it produces the fruit of peace and righteousness 2  for those trained by it. 12:12 Therefore, strengthen 3  your listless hands and your weak knees, 4  12:13 and make straight paths for your feet, 5  so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but be healed.

Do Not Reject God’s Warning

12:14 Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, 6  for without it no one will see the Lord. 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God, that no one be like a bitter root springing up 7  and causing trouble, and through him many become defiled.
