But you have forgotten that the Scriptures say to God’s children,

“When the Lord punishes you,
    don’t make light of it,
and when he corrects you,
    don’t be discouraged.
The Lord corrects the people
    he loves
and disciplines those
    he calls his own.”

Be patient when you are being corrected! This is how God treats his children. Don’t all parents correct their children?

11 It is never fun to be corrected. In fact, at the time it is always painful. But if we learn to obey by being corrected, we will do right and live at peace.

12 Now stand up straight! Stop your knees from shaking 13 and walk a straight path. Then lame people will be healed, instead of getting worse.
