Proverbs 29

"The rod and reproof give wisdom, But a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother." v15

was good to read this this morning. So many little nuggets in this chapter, but that one stood out. I know I need to guard myself against just giving in to the boys wishes all the time. Not that it's bad to give them the things they want, but I need to guard them from selfishness and self centered behaviour.

Wow. Where to start. This chapter is just overflowing with practical truths and so much of it applied to me. I also was drawn to the verses on child rearing, but one verse that really got the wheels turning for me was verse 7;

"Good people care about justice for the poor, but the wicked are not concerned."

also the verses on controlling one's temper in order to keep oneself from sin.
