Nowadays, when children have done something wrong, some parents punish them by not letting them out or not buying them what they want. However, way back then the punishment was different. When you did something bad, your parents will beat you until you learn your lesson. That is why you have to be careful not to do anything bad every time, because you know the pain will be unbearable. Comparing kids before and now kids before were disciplined well, because they fear their parents.
Aside from being beaten to be disciplined, back in the days, it is always required that we have to read the Bible or pray. It is one of the best parts of childhood because at a very young age you will know Jesus. Knowing Jesus is crucial to our living.
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ This is the true God and eternal life.” -1 John 5:20

“The Bible and The Belt”
“The Bible and The Belt” is a gospel song written by Rory Feek and Phillip Coleman. The song is about a story of a man telling his life when he was growing up. He learned a lot when he was young because his parents disciplined him. His father used the belt to teach him not to do anything bad at all. His mother used the Bible to tell him that what he did will not be acceptable to God. He feared both the belt that hurts him physically and the Bible that reminds him his soul wouldn’t be saved unless he is a good person.
The song has a good message because nowadays some kids are not disciplined well. We need to teach them to behave and be a good person.
