Wonderful article. I had never thought of the parallels of relationships in this way. Thank you Rebecca.

6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 10 PrayingPraying


Amen to that! There should ALWAYS be consequences for one's negative actions and, unfortunately today most parents are so brainwashed that their kids grow up to be spoiled brats. Lisa Welchel has a great book called "Creative Discipline" for punishments that will have lessons that certainly stick with the child b/c not every child learns discipline with spanking, not every child learns discipline with time out or grounding or taking away something.

Great parallel, btw, regarding kids and parents and us and God.

6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 6 PrayingPraying


Thanks, Ladies!  I just pray that if my cousin-in-law ever reads this, she won't be too upset.  I just wonder how to tell her without hurting her feelings or stepping on a hot torch???

Thanks for the book recommendation.  If we are around much longer, I will most likely need to check it out because I have a feeling that Nicole's teenage years will be challenging.  What works now could definitely not have the same effect later on.

7 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 7 PrayingPraying

Comments: Rebecca-You have NAILED it! I taught 4th grade in a public school for a number of years, and I had to learn to let "the punishment" fit "the crime", because 9 yr olds have a deep sense of "justice". I love how you show the relationship between God and each person who becomes the Bride of Christ. The "uniqueness" of God's love and discipline applied "individually" to us according to our temperament and intellect , combined with His abiding Grace is what makes me LOVE, ADORE, TRUST, and OBEY Him as a child would do to their BELOVED parent(s)!

8 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 4 PrayingPraying


Great article Becky and we are still growing ourselves and will continue until we go to be with the Lord.

 I remember my wife and I were teaching the Saturday night 5-6 year olds at services at our church. When we were leaving and walking out to the parking lot my daughter, then about five started throwing a fit, about what I don’t even remember.

 My wife was trying to walk her to the car with a firm grip on her arm but she just kept going limp and falling on the ground. My daughter kept yelling at my wife’ “You’re hurting me, you’re hurting me!” Then, with everyone in the parking lot looking at us like we were abusing our daughter, they were probably saying, “Isn’t that the couple that was just watching our children?” Nice, kids are such a joy at times, LOL

  We never spanked our kids except on maybe a rare occasion; I personally think there are more effective ways of discipline that are harder to keep in force, like no movies or games for a week. My son loves to read so my wife would take away his latest book for a couple days. Sounds like an odd thing but it works.

 We have great kids, my daughter is very stubborn and if she does not want to do something you can’t make her do it. I think that may be a good thing when she gets older with the “boy thing” I think she can start dating when she’s 25,that would be an okay age to start, LOL, like you say about Nicole that is if we are still here.
