Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. (Mark 9:42)
“Jesus loves the little children; all the children of the world; red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight; Jesus loves the little children of the world.” How about you? Most will answer, “yes”. But our actions may not reflect that we do. It sadly appears that we are raising a generation of undisciplined children, and if they are undisciplined, God says that they are not loved. “For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.”(1) “If you endure chastening, God deals with you, as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.”(2) When we fail to lovingly discipline and spiritually train our children, we eventually will cause them to stumble. We learned the above song in Sunday school. Are your children faithfully attending Sunday school?
