    Pay constant attention to yourself and to your teaching.

    1 Tim. 4:16.

    All who are authorized to give Scriptural discipline—in the family or in the congregation—are wise when they imitate Christ’s example. Indeed, their doing so reflects their desire to be molded by God and his Son.

    It would be difficult to enumerate all the blessings that result from accepting divine discipline and from imitating Jehovah and Jesus when disciplining others. At the very least, families and congregations become havens of peace. Individuals also feel truly loved, valued, and secure—a foretaste of the blessings to come. (Ps. 72:7)

    Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that Jehovah’s discipline teaches us how to live together forever in peace and harmony as a family under his fatherly care. (Isa. 11:9) When we view divine discipline in that light, we will be more likely to appreciate it for what it truly is: beautiful evidence of God’s unmatched love for us.
