Whoever rebukes a person will in the end gain favor rather than one who has a flattering tongue. Proverbs 28:23 New International Version
In today’s world of the politically correct where if it feels good do it, to rebuke someone is to be considered to be interfering.
I remember when as a child it was quite common for a stranger to rebuke a naughty child when they were misbehaving in public.
Try that now and see what happens.
In s world it is not your fault, it is societies fault, it is your families s fault and the guilty ones go unpunished.
If we had more men and women out there that could mentor properly without the politically correct interfering maybe that would solve a lot of our problems.
When I was a teacher I would gracefully, meekfully (meek means keeping your tempter under control) rebuke naughty or lazy children. Yes, when necessary, they were punished. Many other teachers thought I was harsh. But, at the end of the year, so many of those same students would come up to me and thank me and apologize for their misbehavior.
Whereasthose with flattering tongues tell you it is not your fault or that no, you cannot fail. You did a great job and get a prize even though you did not putany effort in it. These flattering teachers were treated with contempt and distain.
And you wonder why society is in such a mess?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) bless me with the ability to mold those You have placed in my sphere of influence into Godly righteous children of Your precious family. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
