A love that corrects
“Why do you protest your punishment— this wound that has no cure? I have had to punish you because your sins are many and your guilt is great.”
Jeremiah 30:15 NLT
For many people, Bible verses like this, are contradictory to the God of love preached by Jesus.
However, that the Lord loves us does not mean that we’ll not be corrected when it is deserved; this kind of reprimand always will be for our good, and if God corrects us, it’s because He cares bout us.
Those who are not interested in our lives, leave us to our fate, they don’t care if we are suffering or not; they will ignore our complaint and they will not provide the remedy for our suffering.
Instead, the pain that God allows us to go through, refines us and shapes us in order that we may be restored and do not return back.
The Lord heals our wounds and will always be with us, even when all despise us and abandon us.
