Proverbs 3:12

The LORD corrects those he loves
Proverbs 3:12

Fortunately God is patient with us even when we're goofballs. He'll remain faithfully waiting, as we waste time and stubbornly turn to every option but him. Then when we're completely bare, he'll rescue us and clothe our nakedness and shame in his garments of love and grace. He'll be our safe haven. And he'll probably teach us that in the future we should always swim in the pools of his will, fully outfitted in suits of obedience. "For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights."
