No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening–it is painful!
But afterward there will be a quiet harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. Mark out a straight path for your feet.
Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.
Hebrews 12:11-13 (NLT)
