The Purpose of Penalties

The purpose of penalties is get us back on the right road when we make a wrong turn. And we all need some help at times. Proverbs 15:10 says “Discipline is harsh for the one who leaves the path: the one who hates correction will die.” Hopefully those leaving the path will stop and consider the Lord's way of life and the many blessings it brings.

“. . For it is better . . . to suffer for doing good than to suffer for doing evil.” I Peter 3:17

Proverbs 13:24 “The one who will not use the rod hates his son, but the one who loves him disciplines him diligently.”

Proverbs 14:1 “Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands.”

Notable Quotes 


Vice President Kamala Harris“We just have to speak truth no matter how painful it is to speak or hear. And the truth remains that racism is real in America. Sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia — these things are all real in our country. To speak it doesn’t mean that it is about a wholesale attack on the country. But it certainly is about saying, ‘Look, let’s also not approach this with a sense of naivete or denial.’”

–Vice President Kamala Harris, interviewed by Jonathan Capehart in the Washington Post.
