Proverbs 29:15 The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
In today’s world, fears of child abuse have caused us to ignore this verse.Have we therefore missed the power of correction, which gives our children wisdom?
As God restrains us from wrongdoing, we need to stop our children too. We need not touch a child physically to modify behavior.
Will we discipline harmful actions now to raise wise, God fearing children or raise a generation of foolish children?
