Christian Rearing

If you just spare the rod,
And spoil the child;
He will just remain flawed,
And later be wild.

The rod and a sharp word,
Will be giving wisdom;
And disciplines when heard,
Keeping him from boredom.

If you do not proclaim,
Showing what is done wrong;
He will not feel the shame,
Making him weak not strong.

Give your child training,
So he knows what is right;
And knowledge in gaining,
Later in life insight.

You will have peace of mind,
As delight to your soul;
Later in life you will find,
A man with self control.

It will please the Lord too,
That you did not neglect;
Teaching him the value,
Giving God his respect.
