What are some Bible verses that talk about our consequences for our behaviour?
I'd suggest all of Ezekiel chapter 3. But as an excerpt, I'd share this verse now: Ezekiel 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.


James 3:1 "Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly."



Proverbs 25:26-28
Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
27 It is not good to eat much honey,
nor is it glorious to seek one's own glory.
28 A man without self-control
is like a city broken into and left without walls.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
