"You cubs hearing my voice this morning have a duty to your parents to give to them obedience and honor.
Likewise, you parents have a duty to your cubs to give to them discipline and instruction, and to raise them up in the proper direction in which they should go in life."
"Having reverence for your parents instruction will go well with you so you may live long on this Earth...I known of two cases in my lifetime of rebellious teenagers, one of whom I graduated high school with. Their own rebelion led them down the road in life to their own demise and are no longer around.
Therefore, you cubs would do well to remember your parents instructions are like a lamp to guide you."
|"||"Do you know what the biggest difference is between a cub who will grow up to be wise, and a cub who will grow up to be a fool?...Wise cubs accept their parents discipline and instruction, and foolish cubs reject it."|
"The Lord commanded that the Arc of the Covenant was to be moved with poles, and anyone who touched it or looked into it would be struck dead. Uzzah should have allowed the Arc to fall to the ground. The bearers could have picked it back up with the poles without touching it.
This typifies so many cubs and teens who might mean well by thinking they have a better way of doing things than what they were told...Your own game plan so to speak. But regardless how good your intentions may be, rejecting the instruction of you parents is a form of rebellion."
|"||"Out of all fairness, I must also say this...Not all cubs who grow up wrong are the fault of the cubs. Sometimes it is the result of failed parents. There are parents who will by fault of their own raise a fool...My wife and I personally know a pit bull couple, who's names I will not mention, who are such failed parents. The husband is a big shot building contractor, less than honest I can tell you, and has more money than most of us will see in a lifetime. They have two sons whom they have never disciplined and always let them have their way. Today their sons are now in their teens, already been in jail, and are the most spoiled, arrogant, ungrateful, rebellious fools you can find around these parts. There's another pit bull teen who prowls around with them. And from what I've been told, his parents didn't raise him any better either...They are prime examples of where the parents are to blame".|
