“The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.  When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.  Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.  Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him.  He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.” Proverbs 29:15-21 (KJB)

 

FOR FURTHER THOUGHT:  Proverbs 10:1; 13:24; 1 Samuel 3:1; Hebrews 12:10-11; John 14:21-23; James 1:25
