Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers.
For the Lord disciplines those he loves, just as a father disciplines the son in whom he delights.
Listen, children, to a father's instruction, and pay attention so that you may gain discernment.
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but raise them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 2:11
As you know, we treated each one of you as a father treats his own children,
And have you forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons? "My son, do not scorn the Lord's discipline or give up when he corrects you.
