1 Samuel 3:13
I have warned him continually that judgment is coming for his family,
because his sons are blaspheming God
and he hasn’t disciplined them.
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,
Two year old defiance looks a lot different than 15 year old defiance. Two year old defiance is a lot easier to deal with than 15 year old defiance.
Disciplining our children takes discipline in our own lives and it is like being in constant
labor! (Gal. 4:19) But if we don’t do it, there are consequences – God’s judgement on our families! (1 Sam. 3:13)
