One of the reasons we see so much crime among young people today is because they have not received sufficient discipline from their parents. And by “discipline” I don’t mean beating with a stick; I mean things like setting consistent boundaries, letting them experience consequences, and having a unified front among parents: correction driven by love.
It’s not easy to discipline kids. We want them to love us. But the best way we can show our unconditional love for kids is by giving them godly discipline. The message you can listen to here is based on Hebrews 12.5-11, and includes several quotations from the book of Proverbs.
Parents, you have a hard job! Count on my prayers as you do your best to love them in the Lord.
