As parents who love their children, God disciplines those He loves. The key in loving is to correct us when we stray. If you have not experienced the love of a parent, God more than makes up for this. He is a loving Father.
12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. – Proverbs 3:12
3And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. – Philippians 4:3
