2 Corinthians Chapter 12
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
21 And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.

BSP; This is the Ideal, that the one generation would so know the LORD and walk with Him REALLY, so as to have to give to their children. This puts a very grave responsibility upon the father and mother to be more than "name only" Christians, or that they should merely try to fulfill an outward surface level obligation for Church Membership; and that they would actually KNOW what they teach.

Verse 14: This verse shows that children should not be expected to provide their parents with a life of ease. Parent should be balanced in what they expect from their children.
