Message Title: Raising Your Kids the

“Right” Way

Notice the word “right” in quotations because right according to whom?

As Christians, we need to see what the Bible says, not necessarily what “others” say.

TEXT:

Hebrews 12:5-11:

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s

discipline, and do not lose heart when

he rebukes you, because the Lord

disciplines those he loves, and he

punishes everyone he accepts as a

son.” Endure hardship as discipline;

God is treating you as sons. For what

son is not disciplined by his father? If

you are not disciplined (and everyone

undergoes discipline), then you are

illegitimate children and not true sons.

Moreover, we have all had human

fathers who disciplined us and we

respected them for it. How much more

should we submit to the Father of our

spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined

us for a little while as they thought best;

but God disciplines us for our good, that

we may share in his holiness. No

discipline seems pleasant at the time,

but painful. Later on, however, it

produces a harvest of righteousness

and peace for those who have been

trained by it.

This verse teaches us how God deals with his children. Since we are created in God’s image, it also teaches us about the way earthly parents should discipline their children. Notice this:

We are to study God’s methods in dealing with

us and then use those methods in dealing with our children. As God raises his children, so we are to raise ours.

 Discipline is a sign of love. v. 6
