Imagine that the rod is the staff and that Jesus is the rod and staff. As in, thy Rod and thy Staff, they confort me. Now imagine, if a parent spares (denies) the rod he spoils the child. Now, how about spoil as being like a rotten apple. Remember, throughout the new testement Jesus spoke in parables. In that, he would describe one thing that closely parralled another. So, in my estimation, by sparing the rod we neglect to teach, rather than, neglect to whip, our children.

Although, my father, while not a cruel man, knew that a good whacking with a paddle could ward off a multitude of transgressions. For, whenever we, my brothers and I, were tempted to do something foolhardy, we always thought about what my dad would do. And, it kept us from making a lot of mistakes. Which, leads me to another verse which said something to the order that "Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom".
