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   

The Rev. Dr. William Barber II“There’s no way we can inspire people to move with the normal politics that doesn’t fully address poverty. ...When you can work a full-time job at minimum wage and still not be able to afford a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in this country, that’s poor. And if we can’t see that and if we don’t acknowledge that poverty then we are refusing to call upon these witnesses among us.”

– The Rev. William Barber II, co-convenor of the Poor People's Campaign, speaking Feb. 4 at the National Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.
