From the chapter on the topic of Discipline in The Finest of the Wheat Volume 2:
"God does not deal with everyone in the world. He only chastens those whom He loves. He chastens us because we are His beloved. He wants to make us into a suitable vessel. That is why He spends time on His children to chasten them. Chastisement, then, is love's arrangement. Love arranges these happenings. Love measures what we should meet. Love plans the details of our environment. We call this discipline because it always aims at the highest good and the ultimate intention of creation. Those who are chastened of the Lord are those who are assuredly accepted by God. To be scourged is not a sign of rejection, but rather the evidence of God's special approval."
These extracts are grouped together under about fifty topics and are appropriately introduced by a sketch of the life of Watchman Nee that has been provided by the Publisher's translator.
