REBUKED!

Are you in a relationship where you are reprimanded?  How do you handle reprimand?

Check out VADER reprimanding this guy for his “Lack of Faith”

Jesus has a similar scene in Mark 16:14 – for the same problem…”Lack of Faith”

Mark 16:14 Later he appeared to the eleven themselves, while they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their lack of faith and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen him after he had risen.

Check out what Charles Spurgeon said about it too in 1876:

Have you never seen a “coddled” lad? I have seen one, who ought to be in the open air at play, shut in a close room because his parents were fearful that he was delicate, and unable to do as other lads do. He ought to have been taking part in various healthy exercises that would have developed and strengthened every muscle in his body; but, instead of that, he was sitting down, tied to his mother’s apron strings, and so was being made weaker than he was before. He was kept in an atmosphere which was not fit for him to breathe because his foolish parents were afraid the fresh air might be too trying for him; and long before he was ill, he was dosed and physicked until he really became ill. Many a child has been murdered by being thus coddled; or, if he has lived to grow up to manhood, he has been a poor, feeble, effeminate creature, because the abundant love, which has been lavished upon him, has been linked with equally abundant folly. You can easily treat Christians, and especially young converts, in the same senseless fashion. If they are unbelieving, you can keep back from them the stern truth about the sinfulness of such a state of heart and mind, because you fear that they will be discouraged if you deal faithfully with them.
