Commandments to Children

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

Commandments to Children
Colossians 3:20.... "Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing unto the Lord."

1 Timothy 4:12.... "Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."

2 Timothy 2:22.... "Flee also youthful lusts; but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart."

Titus 2:6.... "Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded."

Correction of Children
Ephesians 6:4...."And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."

Colossians 3:21.... "Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged."

Punishment of Children
Matthew 15:4.... "For God commanded, saying, honor thy father and mother. And, he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.". Mark 7:10.
Wicked Children
Mark 13:12.... "Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son, and children shall rise up against parents, and shall cause them to be put to death."

Romans 1:30.... (Reprobates are) "Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,..."

2 Timothy 3:2.... "For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy."

In the Jewish book of Proverbs, the question of raising children is well covered, we read; "Withhold not correction from the child, for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell." Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. If you raise the child with Love and correction you shall save him. If you spare the rod you shall surely spoil the child. Don't you know the Lord corrects us?
