Maybe I've never understood it properly.

But it seems to me that Ephesians 6:4 has a different sense for this word than those listed in the OED. What do you think?

admonition

1. The action of admonishing; authoritative counsel; warning, implied reproof.

2. An act of admonishing; a warning, reproof; an utterance or statement of grave counsel or censure, esp. of ecclesiastical censure.
