For YHVH corrects those he loves, just as a father?

“For YHVH corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” – Proverbs 3:12

Can anyone think of any practical examples?

When a human father corrects a child that he loves, he makes sure the child knows the details of the error. An honorable father issues punishment fitting for or equal to the actual crime…. and allows for comfort and soothing embrace to be given after the time of punishment. We are speaking of a child that a father delights in, right?

Now, in what scenario does YHVH actually do anything consistent with such an experience?

  1. Young man, do not resent it when God chastens and corrects you, for his punishment is proof of his love. Just as a father punishes a son he delights in to make him better, so the Lord corrects you.
