Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
To discipline a child is produce wisdom in them. If they are use to having their own way they will live out of control lives. They will be a disgrace to there mother and heartache to there father. Everyone loves the fool but no one wants them for a son or daughter. But if we train up a child in the way they should go, meaning doing life with them and teaching them about the Lord. No matter what season in life they will be in.
They will come to their senses and return to you and especially to the Lord. You will be proud of them and never be ashamed, we are God's children and he is not ashamed of us. In fact, he became one of us to bear our sin and shame. Giving his life for us so that we could do life with him. We are his disciples, and we are learning to be like Christ. Like a good father he corrects us so we do not live out of control lives. Instead of spoiling us with riches and luxuries. He spoils us with his love and undivided attention. The Lord will not spare the rod, he wants to produce wisdom in us.
