• Understanding God’s Discipline Devotional

    Job 5:17–27

    Truth, if wrongly applied, can actually do more harm than good. Job’s friends were not wrong that God disciplines His children, but they did err in viewing all discipline in punitive terms. Such a view will lead to poor counsel that makes people look in vain for the sin that has led to their suffering or prompts in them feelings of false guilt as they try to explain their suffering. Let us take care not only to know the truth but also to learn to apply it rightly. View Resource
