NIV devotions for Women

At Issue - Parenting

Verse: 1 Samuel 3:11-14

With all the ugly stories of child abuse that we hear, disciplining children has become a touchy subject. Yet we’ve all met people who grew up without discipline—and that neglect is another form of abuse. When Eli refused to discipline his children, God actually stepped in. God approves of discipline and expects us to lovingly discipline our children. Discipline provides a sense of structure for children, allowing them to feel safe. And giving children consequences for their actions while they’re young spares them from greater consequences as adults.

This devotion is from the NIV New Women's Devotional Bible or True Identity by Zondervan. Used with permission.
