A Bible Verse on Discipline




While preparing to read the bible, and with a few extra minutes before we were all together and ready, I instructed the kids to settle down by reading some proverbs.

My teen, who is currently grounded, came across this Proverb and was quite amused (but not really):

'Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die.
Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death.' Proverbs 22:13-14

I am amazed that my daughter, who is fourteen, can appreciate our rules and discipline.
I respect her for understanding the importance. More than that, I am grateful that our parenting ways are reinforced to her in the Bible.

Amen.
