13:24 is the famous spanking verse. Corporal punishment! What do you think? Should you spare the rod and administer time outs or is there a place for the rod in a 2010 society? This is a heated debate among Christians and the culture at large. How do you interpret the verse? Maybe the rod is metaphorical or includes any form of correction. It’s a great discussion maker and everyone has an opinion!
