He expects to have a prosperous road in this life – to wear a white linen garment and walk leisurely on the golden street which leads to the pearly gate.
He has never dreamed that to be a Christian means he will encounter so many troubles.
My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD
Or loathe His reproof,
For whom the LORD loves He reproves,
Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
