Discipline your Children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death. Proverbs 19:18
This Proverb is imperative, which means it is an ABSOLUTE NECESSITY for the well-being of ALL CHILDREN. Children who are NOT DISCIPLINED have NO HOPE. They become REBELLIOUS, UNCONTROLLABLE, CORRUPT, and EVIL MINDED.
Their lifestyle will more than likely, be one of incarceration, they will end up spending MORE time behind bars than NOT. There is NO HOPE for a PRODUCTIVE future, if ANY FUTURE at all. UNDISCIPLINED CHILDREN may even end up facing LIFE in PRISON, or even facing DEATH by capital punishment or from the NATURAL CONSEQUENCES that generally accompany REBELLIOUS, UNCONTROLLABLE behavior.
This outcome for the UNDISCIPLINED CHILD is pretty HOPELESS. And the PARENT(S) are ACCOUNTABLE for this type of behavior. When they REFUSE to DISCIPLINE their CHILDREN, they become a WILLING PARTY to the DEATH of their child. The way to NOT be that WILLING PARTY is to begin DISCIPLINING at an EARLY AGE. If you have STRONG-WILLED children, SEEK HELP from a TRAINED COUNSELOR. But don’t let your PRECIOUS CHILDREN LIVE WITHOUT DISCIPLINE and HOPE.
Now, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING, ALL God’s Children SHOULD be OBEDIENT and NOT REBELLIOUS. They SHOULD BE WILLING to FOLLOW His WORD, and OBEY His Laws. They SHOULD WALK or LIVE by FAITH. They will have HOPE for a FUTURE, their ETERNAL HOPE is HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. However, for the UNDISCIPLINED, REBELLIOUS, EVIL-MINDED PERSON, they have NO HOPE, just an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. But they can have HOPE if they will, TURN AWAY FROM their SINFUL lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then BELIEVE, with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them before God. They MUST CONFESS their sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. They MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and have the HOPE of ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
