Bring them up

  • Nurture: “instruction by action and example; showing; demonstrating.”
  • Admonition–“instruction by word of encouragement, when appropriate, and by a word of reproof, as required.”

  • Heartily: “out of the soul.”
  • Verse 17 and verse 23 form a potent“first word and last word” on the issue of life’s relationships.
