Because He Said So

I added some photos you might enjoy – a morning view of the Sea of Galilee, and an old-fashioned hornbook from which students learned to read. How textbooks have changed! I also revised the poem.

(Proverbs 3:13, 5:23, 13:24; Col. 3:21)

As I wonder at the wonder of God

I realize how a facade

On the part of parents for their children

Can lead to journeys flawed.

Discipline lacked and folly gained

So what if an offender complained?

Better that authority set the bounds

Than abstained.

Early in a child’s life

Patterns begun by husband and wife

Correcting with love, careful and swift

Avoids later strife.

“Firm, but kind,” must persist

Or opportunities will be missed

Show in your home the wisdom of God

Quarreling?  Desist.

Correct your progeny with love

Follow the example of our Maker above

Trust in Him, for He knows all

Do it because — He said so.
