Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.
1 Peter 5:3
Not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.
It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.
