“Thank you, mom, for loving me enough to follow through. I appreciate that you grounded me,” my child said to me.
I asked said child, “Why do you appreciate getting grounded? You are missing out on your friends and video game time…and tv…??”
I was mystified.
“Because if you let me walk all over you, that just means you love yourself and easy stuff more than you love me. I need consequences, or I’m just going to do this again.”
So…when I have painful circumstances in my life, I can know it’s because He loves me. Check Proverbs 3 . It’s all spelled out.
And discipline your kids. Because you love them. More on life’s consequences here.
Dare you to subscribe to our walk through Proverbs as we attempt to grow in wisdom.
Double-dog-dare you to share or invite friends! J
Thankful to be on the journey with you,
