04-03-2024 Sirach 30 V01 Him chastise son love




The Book of Sirach Ch 30 v- 01


1 Whoever loves a son will chastise him often, that he may be his joy when he grows up.


Chastising a son is a form of tough love that helps to instill discipline and good behavior. By setting boundaries and enforcing consequences for misbehavior, parents are teaching their children important life lessons about responsibility and accountability. This guidance is essential for a child’s development and lays the foundation for success in adulthood.


Chastisement also helps to cultivate a strong work ethic and resilience in a child. By experiencing consequences for their actions, children learn the value of hard work and perseverance. They understand that success often requires overcoming obstacles and setbacks, and that failure is a natural part of the learning process. These lessons will serve them well as they navigate the challenges of adulthood and strive to achieve their goals.


Furthermore, chastisement can help to strengthen the bond between parent and child. When parents take the time to correct their child’s behavior and teach them right from wrong, they are showing that they care deeply about their well-being. This level of investment in a child’s upbringing can foster a deep sense of trust and respect, laying the groundwork for a strong and loving relationship in the future.


Ultimately, the goal of chastisement is to help a child grow into a responsible, well-adjusted adult who can contribute positively to society. By providing guidance and discipline, parents are preparing their children to face the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. When a child grows up to be a person of integrity and character, parents can take pride in knowing that their efforts have paid off and that their child will bring them joy for years to come. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Chastise Him Often**


Whoever loves a son will guide him with care,

Chastising him often, showing him what’s fair.

For through discipline and love, he will grow strong,

His character shaped, his values lifelong.


Though it may be tough to reprimand,

It’s done out of love, to help him understand.

The lessons learned will serve him well,

In his adult life, his story to tell.


So let us remember, as parents we play a role,

In shaping our children, in helping them reach their goal.

For whoever loves a son will chastise him with care,

So he may be our joy, beyond compare. Amen.
