For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son [in whom] he delighteth. (Proverbs 3:12)
Because of His unconditional and passionate love for His children, God disciples and instructs His children in His wisdom. Indeed, it is by His unchanging and constant adoration that we are made a new creation. By the gift of God’s son and a repentant heart, the mercies of Christ enfold us and bring us to God’s side. Just as a father adores his son, so our Heavenly Father delights in us!
