When your Father smites you!
From Spurgeon's, "None But Jesus"
Even when your Father smites you and leaves
at every stroke, and brings the blood at every blow,
there is not a particle of condemnation in any one stroke.
Not in his anger, but in his dear covenant love he smites you.
There is as unmixed and unalloyed affection in every
love-stroke of chastisement from your Father's hand,
as there is in the kisses of Jesus Christ's lips.
