Spanking Father

He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13 : 24

Good morning to you all in the matchless name of our Heavenly father. The following red colored text is available in "You can win" book.

A judge, when sentencing a man for robbery, asked if he had anything to say. The man replied, "Yes, your honor. Please sentence my parents to jail also." The judge asked, "Why?" The prisoner answered, "When I was a little boy, I stole a pencil from school. My parents knew about it but never said a word. Then I stole a pen. They knowingly ignored it. I continued to steal many other things from the school and the neighborhood till it became an obsession. They knew about it, yet they never said a word. If anyone belongs in jail with me, they do."

Isn't he right?. I guess you all would agree with this. So, if the parents allow their child to do anything without any restriction, then they are paving a smoother way for him/her to destruction. As per the above verse, they should spare their kids every now and then, when they find anything going wrong. In that way they can prevent their kid from demolition. As a daughter/son, will you allow your father / mother who is a diabetic patient to eat sweets? No, right? This is not an act of hating, instead this is a reflection of our love towards them. Are you giving up your faith when you are punished by our Heavenly father? Is He not the best father who knows how to prevent his children from ruining themselves? Remember these punishments are just for letting you to be on the safer side. He loves us a lot. Unless He punishes us on time, we won't be remaining good and on some day we'll also complain against Him just as the man did to his parents. Our clever Heavenly Father will never allow us to make such complaints.

Someone has told me that it also has another meaning. The Jewish parents will have the rod shaped scrolls which have the instructions from the Bible and whenever they have time, they will gather their children together and will teach them the decrees. In this way, they'll take these rods every now and then to correct their children through scriptures.
