The Purpose of Penalties

The purpose of penalties is get us back on the right road when we make a wrong turn. And we all need some help at times. Proverbs 15:10 says “Discipline is harsh for the one who leaves the path: the one who hates correction will die.” Hopefully those leaving the path will stop and consider the Lord's way of life and the many blessings it brings.

“. . For it is better . . . to suffer for doing good than to suffer for doing evil.” I Peter 3:17

Proverbs 13:24 “The one who will not use the rod hates his son, but the one who loves him disciplines him diligently.”

Proverbs 14:1 “Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands.”

Notable Quotes   

    "Christ told us specifically where He would be found and where we were to worship Him as Christians until He came in glory: Christ is in the people who need our help. Christ is in hungry and thirsty people; in people without adequate clothing and shelter; in people who are strangers in a strange land and people who are imprisoned. Any so-called Christianity that ignores or, God forbid, abuses such people is pernicious heresy from the pit of hell. You spit on the Body of Christ in the Chalice when you abuse Him in the body of your neighbor."

    – Mary Pezzulo, "How to Help Imprisoned Migrants," on her blog "Steel Magnificat" on Patheos.com.
