Today's daily words of encouragement word is Punishment. There's punishment for all our deeds of iniquity, so we need to live our lives as close as possible to sin free. If we live a righteous and godly life, we can expect good rewards from God, but if we're busy doing all manner of unholy things, then will also reap the benefit of those things and our acts of iniquity. We punish our children in one way or another for their wrong doings; that is if we 're a good parent. To let our children get away with blatant acts of disobedience is inexcusable on our part. God our father punish us for our wrong doings and our children are no better than us.
If we start when the children are very young , teaching them right from wrong, they will be rewarded in the end and we'll be proud parent of the outcome. I will choose rewards over punishment any day, but we don't get the rewards, if we don't live our lives according to the word of God. Punishment is something that anyone look forward too, so if we love each other and treat everyone according , our reward will be great in our heavenly home.
