A refusal to correct is a refusal to love;
love your children by disciplining them.
Without guidance, your child will go wild. With guidance—directional intent—your child will have joy.
It is a scene that is repeated much too often—a young man gets involved with a crime and is injured, jailed, or worse, dead. The parents talk about what a good boy that he was. The facts prove otherwise, he was involved in criminal activity for years, and it’s caught up to him.
What went wrong?
When parents don’t discipline their children—they don’t love them.
That sounds so contrary to what society would argue, but it’s true. If a parent fails to lead and give their children directional intent, they are hopelessly lost.
When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.
But whoever obeys the law is joyful. – Proverbs 29:18
We must give our children directional intent to secure a joyful and successful life.
Don’t refuse to love your child.
