Deuteronomy 1:1-46; Ecclesiastes 1:1-2:11; Luke 6:1-19

Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee. Deuteronomy 8:5

In the rearing of His children, our loving God knows that some forms of training are less enjoyable for us than others. In His faithfulness, He does not hesitate to do everything necessary to bring us to full stature and maturity, on our journey to being conformed to the image of His Son. Our thoughts may deceive us into thinking we are being ill-treated. Yet when we consider His love for us in our hearts, we can trust that He is doing all that is best for us. —Rick Morse

I know that His power my safeguard shall be;
For “Why are ye troubled?” He saith unto me. —Anna B. Warner
