Discipline your child for heaven

We forget that disciplining our children is not just about stopping a certain behaviour, but more about shaping a child to follow God and serving Him in obedience.

Russell Moore wrote an excellent article called The Eschatology of Parenting. For those with children, or thinking of having children, read this as a reminder what Christian disciplining of children is about.

Here is a short quote:
"A parent who will not discipline a child for disobedience, or who is inconsistent in doing so, is teaching that child not to expect consequences for behavior.

"In short, a parent who will not discipline is denying the doctrine of hell."
