Sermon Passages: Colossians 3:20; Proverbs 29:17
Like instruction, disciplining your children—admonishing or calling them to soundness of mind and self-control—changes as your child grows. Whatever their age, however, the goal of discipline is ultimately the godliness and welfare of your child. We discipline our children out of love and affection, not hatred or anger. Proverbs 29:15 says, “The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.” Mickey gives excellent instruction about what this does and does not mean.
