You struggle against sin,
But struggles do not kill;
Rather towards discipline,
For strengthening your will.
 
The encouraging Word,
That you have forgotten;
So many times you heard,
But you're spoiled rotten.
 
You might be an adult,
But act like a child;
It is like an insult,
That you grew up wild.
 
So pay attention when,
The Lord disciplines you;
He's like a mother hen,
When you are not so true.
 
Don't give up calling quits,
When He has disciplined;
Do not curse or throw fits,
Scolded when you have sinned.
 
It is love that corrects,
Disciplines anyone;
A child He accepts,
As a daughter or son.
 
Endure your discipline,
The chastening He gives;
Reaction to your sin,
Showing that He forgives.
 
Accept your punishment,
As a child of God;
There is no abolishment,
If you honor and laud.
 
Having no discipline,
No longer His child;
You continue to sin,
While being wild.
 
The Father of spirits,
Is willing to forgive;
If we do good merits,
As He wills us to live.
