Proverbs (7)

1478588400Our Bible Reading today is just one verse. But it is a very important verse. “If you don’t correct your children, you don’t love them. If you love them, you will be quick to discipline them.” God wants us to discipline our children. That is how we teach them what is right and what is wrong.
This verse was written by Solomon at a time when shepherds took care of flocks of sheep. A shepherd would use a rod or a staff to help keep the sheep on the right path. With a rod he could tap the sheep on the side to move them from one place to another or keep them from going into a dangerous place. With his staff, the shepherd could rescue a sheep when he fell down or was hurt.
Maybe you are a parent, a grandparent, a youth worker in your church or just a neighbor to children. You can teach children about God and help them grow up loving and serving God. Ask God to help you as you share about Him with the children in your life.
