He Does Not Discipline With Death

"I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord . The Lord has chastened me severely, But He has not given me over to death."
Psalms 118:17‭-‬18 NKJV

Hebrews 12:5-11 talks about God disciplining His children.  He does discipline His children but how does He do it? Many have speculated on this subject and many more have interpreted 'mysterious' or unexplainably hurtful events as discipline from the Lord.

Sometimes it's better to admit that we don't fully know something yet than to rush to conclusions about the nature of God. God chastens His children but does not use cancer, Alzheimer's, or death to correct His kids. That's bad parenting. On earth such parents belong to a psychiatric hospital. 

If human beings as evil as they are do not hurt their children to teach them a lesson why do we think that God who is so holy and the embodiment of love can do such despicable acts in the name of training. God is good and, every good and perfect gift comes from Him alone.

The Lord will never discipline me with sickness and death because He loves and cares for me.
