“Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of discipline will remove it far from him.” (Pr 22:15)
The beauty of children is their innocence and naivety. They are whimsical and care-free and see the best in the world.
But not all the world is good and innocent, and they will need to know how to navigate the waters where sharks swim. That is going to take courage and discipline and wisdom.
That is what parents are for. You protect them when you train them. If you don’t do your job, the world will devour your beautiful child. Preserve their beauty and joy, but gird them with wisdom.
Matt 4:4 #Biblebites
