**Today’s Message – How many times have we said to your kids or your grandkids, "You deserve to be disciplined"? When they have not listened or when they have grabbed a toy out of their siblings hand, how many times have we said that what they did was wrong and they deserved to go to their room or they deserved to sit in a corner or they deserved to have done to them whatever your method of discipline is? But, is that the way God works with us? When it comes to God, do we get what we deserve? That's what we will examine in this last session on, "Things Jesus Never Said."
