Proverbs 29: Discipline Me, Humility Transgresses Into Strife

A Look Inside

Today's scripture covers a few issues that need attention in today's society - discipline, anger, and consequences. One of the main points is to correct your charges early in life. This could refer to a parent-child, student-teacher, mentor-partner, or many other types of leader-follower relationships.

Break It Down


Proverbs 29:16,17 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

The first part of verse 16 is quite evident in today's society. Look around at all of the evil that is happening - pornography, child molestation, rapes, murders … there isn't enough room in this entire book for a detailed list. Has this increase in sinfulness happened just because the same people have decided to "ramp it up a notch?" Not quite!

The wicked have multiplied down through the generations. Years ago, neighbors watched out for each other and you were afraid to misbehave because you were disciplined by the neighbor and then by your parents when you arrived home because the neighbor called and reported your antics. As the next generation, and the next, and the next came along the approach to discipline (and respect) changed dramatically. Each generation has made a few more steps away from "the old days."

The second part of this verse is some good news. It doesn't mean that the righteous, God's people, will never have trials. The answer seems to come from two words that describe many of the great Christian mentors in the world - faith and patience. The faithful will patiently watch as the wicked fall by the wayside, with a full knowledge of their eternal destination.
