“How happy the person whom God corrects! So don’t despise Shaddai’s discipline.”
Job 5:17 CJB
This statement is true. We should be happy that Adonai loves us so much that He does lovingly correct us! But, we need to be careful on how we use this verse! Why? Because Job’s friend Eliphaz, says this here to Job as a jab against him, we need to be careful of doing the same! We need to have compassion on those around us and let God do the correcting!
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.”
Romans 12:15 CJB
Yes, we need to be people of understanding and compassion! We need to care for those who are hurting and be glad for those who are doing well!
We should share in people’s sorrows and rejoice when they are being blessed also!
“Rejoice in Adonai, you righteous! Praise is well-suited to the upright.”
Psalm 33:1 CJB
Today, let’s be a people who encourage and have compassion for each other!
Have a blessed day!
