Hebrews 12:6-9

NAS 6 FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES." NIV 6 because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son." NAS 7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? NIV 7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? NAS 8 But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. NIV 8 If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. NAS 9 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? NIV 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!
