Pro.29:15 - "A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother." Many parents/teachers think it's bad to be forbidden to use the "rod" to discipline kids. But is that true? "Rod" can also be translated as "scepter", giving a different angle on disciplining a child.
A scepter is an emblem of royalty. We should place a scepter in our kids hands and teach them to be children of the King, but remember, we can only do that if WE act like kings and queens of the King. As Jesus said: "The Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing..." (Joh.5:19)
