He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly. (Proverbs 13:24 NKJV)
Not discipling your children is equivalent to hating them.
Disciplining them diligently is equivalent to loving them.
And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives. If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:5-11 NKJV)
Proverbs 15:5 A fool despises his fathers instruction, But he who receives correction is prudent. (Proverbs 15:5 NKJV)
Childrens children are the crown of old men, And the glory of children is their father. (Proverbs 17:6 NKJV)
Our grand kids are a direct representation of our discipleship! We are responsible for the character of our children therefore passing on a legacy of righteousness or wickedness. The way they turn out can either be a glorious crown or an evil generation!!!
Chasten your son while there is hope, And do not set your heart on his destruction.
Parents need to make every moment in a child's young life a teachable moment weather instruction or discipline. While you still can and they're little. Don't give up so easily and give them over to destruction. You are the patent and in the end it's your fault for lack of responsibility in your parenting.
The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall. Correct your son, and he will give you rest; Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
V.15 Spanking and calling out your children when they do something wrong gives them Wisdom. If u don't practice that and let the child run wild without ever spanking or rebuking them when they sin they grow up to bring shame to their parents.
V.16. The result of non biblical parenting is that they grow up to be wicked people they multiply by generations(like when I was in gangs) sin increases in the world through them. But those brought up with biblical parenting will see the wicked fall.
V.17 When we train and correct our children in a biblical way God promises peace in the home. Your children will grow up to delight your soul. You'll be proud parent and grandparent.
This next verse is a great representation of biblical parenting. As a child of God David asks the Heavenly Father for first for a bigger enlarged heart to love GOD so that he can endure, also for Understanding So that he can keep His law observing it with his whole heart.
I will run the course of Your commandments, For You shall enlarge my heart. Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, And I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it. (Psalm 119:32-35 NKJV)
Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged. (Colossians 3:21 NLT)
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4 NLT)
