“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” 
Hebrews 12:5b-6 ESV

Hands aren’t just made for spanking 
Or for pulling on our ears
They’re also made for holding ours 
And drying all our tears

They pick us up when we fall down
And hold us up us in prayer
At night they tuck us in to sleep
And gently stroke our hair

But the hands I love the most
Were nailed to the cross
Where Jesus took away my sins
So I would not be lost!

  1. Aw Pete, you got me. Good one.
    I defaulted quickly to a scene I will hold forever. Our middle daughter was born with her spinal cord sticking out her back and it looked severed (it never really joined). She was rushed 100 miles to a facility for a couple life saving surgeries where I caught up and could see her in the warming incubator (she couldn’t produce enough of her own heat).
    I reached through the rubberized hole and her hand immediately came up and grabbed on to one of my fingers, tenaciously held on and would not let go. 41 years, 37 surgeries and 4 major life flights and ambulanced rides later she has never let go. She loves Jesus and that’s what counts
