The Lord provides a way to salvation and forgiveness through Jesus, but that means little to those who do not see their sin. The same is true for our human children. The Bible warns that parents should never abuse the power and authority they have over their children while they are young because it provokes the children to righteous anger Ephesians ; Colossians Jane: How can you allow your little boy to be so rude?
Hebrews —11 tells us that God disciplines those whom He loves to perfect their righteousness. When a child does not feel the consequence of his sin, he will not understand that sin requires punishment. He will become, in the common vernacular, a spoiled brat.
Ellen: It distresses me to punish him. Jane: lean understand that, but spare the rod and spoil the child. That is why all children need discipline.
