Discipline Saves Lives

Note in this verse the importance of disciplining children when they are very young. The author points out, correctly I can attest, that if discipline is not enforced and required at an early age children can be spoiled beyond earthly repair. It is a tragedy when parents fail to discipline their children in love, requiring them to live within behavioral boundaries. These are lessons we need throughout our lives to live as God calls us.

Proverbs 19:18

“Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise you will ruin their lives.”
