Have you allowed fame, career, success, or time to get in the way of … family responsibilities?

Many have echoed this important concept. Even Israel’s great King David failed in this responsibility. Speaking of his son, Adonijah who sought to steal his throne, the Bible says, “King David had never disciplined him at any time.” What a sad comment, and the result was a threat to the kingdom. It’s a very present danger today. Parents, train your children well.

Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them (Proverbs 13:24).
