That will be the title of the message for this Thursday night. As I sit here studying I came across a great quote from John MacArthur:
If we do not understand our problems as being discipline that the Lord sends for our good, we cannot profit from them as He intends. Our reactions cannot be right if our view of what is happening is not right. The spiritual weakness mentioned in this verse Hebrews 12:5 is not that of taking our problems lightly but of taking the Lord’s discipline through them lightly. It is usually because we take our problems too seriously that we take the Lord’s discipline too lightly. Our focus is on our experience rather than on our heavenly Father and on what He wants to do for us through the experience.
