21 Scriptures for Raising Children in the Word.
Exo 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Lev 20:9 For anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother; his blood is upon him.
Ecc 8:11 Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil.
Psa 103:13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.

Pro 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.
Pro 13:1 A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
Pro 13:24 Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.
Pro 19:18 Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.
Pro 19:26,27 He who does violence to his father and chases away his mother is a son who brings shame and reproach. Cease to hear instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
Pro 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Pro 22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
Pro 23:13,14 Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol
Pro 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Mat 18:6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Eph 6:1-4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
1Ti 3:4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive,
2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
Heb 12:5-9 And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live?
Heb 12:10,11 For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Rev 3:19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.
