Proverbs 15:5- A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
Proverbs 29:15- The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.
Proverbs 13:24- He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves his son is careful to discipline him.
Proverbs 13:24 says, "CAREFUL to discipline him." I'm refocusing on this point. I need to be careful to discipline and careful in discipline. I love my children, more than words can express, and I need to make sure that I always discipline out of the love that I have for them, just as Christ disciplines us out of his amazing love for us.
