From your Pastor;

          “My son, pay attention when the Lord corrects you, and do not be discouraged when He rebukes you. Because the Lord corrects everyone He loves, and disciplines everyone He accepts 
as a son.”                                   Hebrews 12:5-6

           Two attitudes are mentioned here in this text.
One do not let slip by the correction of the Lord. We must not regard this lightly. It is the way to life. Be sure we make adjustments as the Lord leads, even in the slightest of things. 
      Secondly, we should not become discouraged or faint under the voice or direction of the Lord.  His hand is not so heavy to destroy you but to teach you. If you become discouraged you may find Christianity too difficult and give up. The Christian walk is not one of leisure but one of the straight and narrow. 
       Therefore we must be mentally prepared to receive the correction and discipline of our heavenly Father. Don’t despise it, but rather take it seriously and permit it to happen. Surrender to it and you will find healing, joy and victory on the other side. 
         The Lord chastens His own to make them partakers of His divine nature. 
“For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son...”                   
                                                                      Romans 8:29
