One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
~1 Timothy 3:4-5
Sons are a heritage from the Lord,
children a reward from him.

are sons born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
~Psalm 127:3-5 (NIV)
Discipline your son, and he will give you peace;
he will bring delight to your soul.
~Proverbs 29:17 (NIV)
All your sons will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be your children’s peace.
~Isaiah 54:13 (NIV)
