Loving Parent, Responsive Child

Even as we expect our children to submit to our correction, so should we submit to the discipline of the Lord.  Do those children sometimes push back?  Do we push back when the Lord directs us?  I suspect that God often finds His children to be as intractable as we sometimes find our children to be.

Heed wisdom:

11 My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline
    or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
    as a father the son in whom he delights.  --Proverbs 3:10, 11 (ESV)
