For some time now I have been thinking about the concept of God, our Heavenly Father, being a 'parent' who disciplines His children when that is needed but does so because of His love for His children.

What began as one article has developed into a 5 part study that I think is suitable for individual study or for use in a small group. I have tried to address questions like "Why", "How" and "What" of this discipline issue.

I have inserted questions along the way that might generate discussion which could be helpful in a group study.

I offer these pages with the prayer that the content will be used by the Holy Spirit to help us grasp the truth that trials of faith are, in fact, evidence of God's love rather than an expression of His displeasure.
