For those that believe in the Book of Mormon and those great words of wisdom - here is an excellent scripture that hones that perspective:
1 Nephi 17:38
38 And he leadeth away the righteous into precious lands, and the wicked he destroyeth, and curseth the land unto them for their sakes.
Now, I want to say that any withdrawal of promised or otherwise deserved blessings is a cursing - by definition. How can someone bless someone they love if they simply have trodden the blessing under foot over and over again - showing total lack of concern and utter contempt, at times, for the blessing. A cursing, or complete withdrawal of the blessing is in order.
In the very act of cursing (withdrawing the blessing) until the wicked are humbled is an act of mercy and tenderness. Leaving our children without parenting them (no consequences - good, or bad for their actions) is the greatest disservice that we can do to them. We can extrapolate the same logic up a level to the Father of our Spirits.
