TARGET THEIR HEARTS…

THE CANE AND YOUR CHILD…

“Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.”

– Proverbs 22:15

What the rod (cane) will do for your child, can’t be compared to what the Word of God will do in his heart…

Godly child training targets the heart of the child…See the parable of the sower in Mark chapter 4…

All that a cane offers is pain…

And if pain joins foolishness in the heart of a child…

What you will have is an angry and bitter child!

So…

If foolishness is in the heart of a child…

Then, it will take what can get to the heart to drive it away…

Not what inflicts pain (I believe)…😁

If it’s wisdom you want to communicate to your child …

Then, I’d like to let you know that wisdom is spoken…Not inflicted!

The most effective rod now, is “the rod of (the)mouth” – Read Isaiah 11:1-4.

In the New Testament life ( that is, life after the cross and the resurrection of Jesus), Paul makes us understand that wisdom is communicated with our words – 1Corinthians 2:6 …”Howbeit we speak wisdom…”

IT MUST BE IN YOUR HEART FIRST

You see, you can’t give what you don’t have… For you to be able to speak wisdom, when you speak to your children, your heart must be rich with the understanding of God’s perspective of things…

“for out of the abundance of the heart…a good man brings out (speaks) good things (wisdom)” – Read Matthew 12:33-37.

So, parenting demands that you “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly” – Colossians 3:16.

For you to be able to teach your children wisdom, the “holy scriptures) must first make you wise – Read 2Timothy 3:15 -17…

That’s why you must “study to show yourself approved” unto God, as a parent, if you must not be ashamed tomorrow – Read 2Timothy 2:15.

Receive grace…And a continuos supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ…In Jesus precious name!
