The word discipline has come to mean “to punish” or “to bring under control”. However, discipline originally comes from the Latin word disciplina , which means to instruct or to teach . Therefore, in its best sense, to discipline is to guide or lead by teaching .
A fool despises his father’s instruction, but a person who heeds correction is sensible . An ear that listens to life-giving rebukes will be at home among the wise. Anyone who ignores instruction despises himself, but whoever listens to correction acquires good sense . (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Endure it as discipline: God is dealing with you as sons. For what son is there whom a father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline—which all receive—then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Furthermore, we had natural fathers discipline us, and we respected them. Shouldn’t we submit even more to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time based on what seemed good to them, but He does it for our benefit, so that we can share His holiness. No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful . Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
