BDBD is Proverbs 15:5

   A good Father will find the need to discipline his children even though it is hard and not pleasant (Hebrews 12:7-10). A prudent child will respond well to a Father’s discipline even when it is hard and not pleasant.

   Discipline takes several forms, meanings, and methods. The Spirit leading Jesus to 40 days of temptation in the desert is a form of discipline. It was not pleasant nor easy, yet needed at the start of his public ministry.
   Jesus sending out the 12 apostles and then the 72 disciples was a form of discipline. It was challenging and required faith, yet needed as preparation for when Jesus would assend into heaven.
   Jesus disciplines me to. “…God disciples me for good, that I may share in his holiness.” (Hebrews12:10) Perhaps these continual computer and internet connection problems are a form of his discipline. I shall not spur my Father’s discipline.
