Children And The Rod – Proverbs 23:13

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Children And The Rod
Proverbs 23:13-14 (NIV)

13 Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
14 Punish them with the rod
and save them from death.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Many adults insist that a child must never be physically disciplined.
This duel proverb rejects that philosophy.
The older the child becomes, the less effective the rod becomes.

Wisdom, The Heart, And 3 Senses
Proverbs 23:12 (NIV)

12 Apply your heart to instruction
and your ears to words of knowledge.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Store wisdom in your heart.
Write it down so your hands can feel it,
and your eyes can see it.
Speak it audibly so your ears can hear it.

Make it real to three of your five senses,
