There are a lot of parents who have a hard time saying yes, but there are a few parents who can’t say no. Neither extreme is good. The first makes life miserable for kids. Think about it. If your mom and dad never let you do anything, what fun would you have in life? But, if you’re a parent who can’t say no? Scripture is pretty clear. Proverbs says if you withhold discipline—and saying no is discipline—you’re actually hating your child. It says discipline actually saves our kids from hell. If you’re having a hard time saying that difficult two-letter word, remember God says no. Discipline won’t only give you peace, but it’ll give you delight as you watch your kids grow in Him.
