If you could peer into the heart of your teen… what would you see?
Proverbs 22:15 says, “A youngster’s heart is filled with foolishness, but discipline will drive it away.”
So there you have it. Your teen’s heart and mind is filled with foolishness. The Bible says it!
And you and I both know folks who continue to live out of that foolishness long beyond childhood. Your job, Mom and Dad… as we read right here in Proverbs… is to use discipline, love and endurance to banish that foolishness.
So stick to your job. Take it as a mandate from Scripture to know what’s in your child’s heart and stay consistent with discipline. “A youngster’s heart is filled with foolishness, but discipline will drive it away.”
