Conversation Starters: He Disciplines the One He Loves
Posted by Teeny
“Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap, because the one who sows to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirt.” Galatians 6:7-8
How can you keep this conversation going at home? Try bouncing some of these questions around at the dinner table, as you’re driving your kids to school or an activity or even while you’re shopping together:
What are some of the rules we have in our house?
Why do we have those rules? Are they because we don’t want you to have any fun, or because we don’t want you to get hurt?
What do you think would happen if you were never punished when you did something wrong?
Do you think if we (your parents) loved you more, we wouldn’t discipline you as much? Why or Why not?
Talk with your teenager about the worst trouble you ever got into. What did you learn from it? How did your own parents discipline you?
