Proverbs 13:24 ” He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.”

There is nothing that equals the close emotional attachment parents have for their children. We want only the very best for them…not wanting them to experience all the pitfalls we had growing up. But when many look at disciplining their children, they see only the negative authoritarian aspect, with parents lording over and aggressively alienating their children by intimidation. But that’s not the true meaning nor application of Godly discipline, for just as our Heavenly Father disciplines His children in order to change behaviors, (Proverbs 3:12) we are to correct and instruct our children… “For in that there is hope.” (Proverbs 19:18)
