A grievous process that brings about the peaceful fruits of righteousness. When Children Misbehave (Part 2)

Introduction We have already noted the necessity and seriousness of corporate chastisement. God’s divine word, not man’s changing philosophies, is what we’ll be judged by and how we please Him in the raising of our children. It is a daunting task but one that not only is essential in godly upbringing, but also in shaping the character of parents.

But those who do will be rewarded with the peaceable fruits of righteousness and enjoy a biblically blessed family.

Corporal Chastisement is Grievous Loving parents do not enjoy the thought of chastening their children: many – as a result – have reasons not to use the rod. The pain of punishing your child may be difficult to bear. It comes at a seemingly inconvenient times. Parents wonder if all their “work” is actually beneficial when it seems like nothing is getting through to their children.

Corporal Chastisement is Grievous Parents can and will get angry. Cp. Eph. 4:26 Anger is not bad in and of itself. Exo. 22:21-24 Sin takes place when your heart is murderous/hateful; when your anger is for no just cause . Conversely “righteous indignation” against rebellion or injustice is biblically viewed as acceptable. Jn. 2:13-17; cp. Rom. 13:2-4

Corporal Chastisement is Grievous Parents will get frustrated and “worn out.” It is tiring having to repeatedly teach/warn/reprove/chastise your children over the same thing seemingly infinite times. NOTE: consider how we test the longsuffering of God with our rebellious behavior against His will. This is all the more reason why corporal chastisement can be a quick and efficient means.

Corporal Chastisement is Grievous Bottom line: parents will practice chastisement imperfectly. Because we may not necessarily be all knowing about every situation. Because we may not exercise judgments righteously, but discriminately.

The Peaceable Fruits of Righteousness Like teaching, correction and punishment has goals for your child: wisdom and joyful obedience. Prov. 29:15; 1 Jn. 5:3 Some children learn joyful obedience quickly…praise God! Some children are a thorn in your side and test your faith…praise God! Maybe this child was brought about (via God’s divine providence) to teach/chasten you? Maybe this child was brought about to refine your character? Regardless, God entrusted you with this specific child as a blessing and expects you to be a serving steward… which also deserves His praise.

The Peaceable Fruits of Righteousness Ultimately, you will reap what you sow. Hateful, inconsistence, lack of diligence all bring about disastrous results. On the other hand, chastising your dear children, combined with loving teaching and correction, will bring you great joy and bring them peaceful fruits of righteousness. Heb. 12:11

Conclusion While not joyful, and even grievous at times, the end result of chastening your children as God desires truly does bring about the peaceable fruits of righteousness. May all who fear the Lord and keep His commandments be blessed by Him to have truly blessed families.
