Proverbs 13:24

He who withholds the rod [of discipline] hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines and trains him diligently and appropriately [with wisdom and love].

Reflective Thinking

The rod of discipline will look different to almost every parent and child. I think it’s wise to learn the best methods of discipline for each child. Another amazing fun fact about our Father is how disciplines and trains each of us with wisdom and love in a diligent way designed perfectly for each of us individually. 

Action Idea

Remember, disciplining others when done with love and wisdom will look like how our Father disciplines each of us… in a diligent way designed perfectly for each of us individually. When it comes to training and teaching our children, or whomever really, lets ensure we model it after God’s example toward each of us by asking God for wisdom in this area and also by gaining knowledge and understanding through books, conferences, and wise mentors who have had experience and success with this.
