Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

DISCIPLINE IS LOVE - Part 2


A child should be shown from an early age about making a choice to obey his father and mother always. When a child chooses to disobey ~ there must be consequences set forth ~ so that the discipline brings them back to the path of choosing obedience first. To obey or not to obey? ~ this is the question of life – both for children and for us as adults in our walk with God.

This is a good post, Stephanie.

Titus is a book not often given importance, but it is one book that has many practical truths for all who wish to sincerely live out their faith!

I agree with what you wrote. Years ago, when my husband and I were still raising our three children (now ages 30, 28, and 26) we were guided by these wise words: Discipline is what you do FOR a child, not TO a child.

I completely agree with your post. Even as adults we are still learning lessons through the consequences of our actions. Everyday is an opportunity to learn and grow in our spiritual lives.
