God as a Father to Israel

Sometimes God dealt harshly with Israel, but Moses wanted them to know, “You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the LORD your God chastens you. Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him” (Deuteronomy 8:5-6).
Yes, God is a loving Father, but He also has to do other things that fathers do that make their children question whether he loves them, but the firm discipline truly comes from a heart of love.
When God disciplines you, do not conclude that He does not love, for it is a sign that He does.
