It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth

It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. Lamentations 3:27

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

We have had fathers of our flesh, which corrected us; and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. — Humble yourselves, therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

Proverbs 22:6. Hebrews 12:9,10. Psalm 119:67,71. Jeremiah 29:11. 1 Peter 5:6.
