And the whole heart is faint.
Growing up, I was a strong-willed and arrogant child. I became very familiar with discipline and punishment (there is a difference). I appreciated the discipline more than the punishment. It took my parents having the patience of God not to murder me or stone me. Thank God for the New Testament. In my ignominious display of total depravity and sinfulness, the goading that was my upbringing taught me to appreciate the full height of justice.
