But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15
We are responsible for leading our families to God. You are called to be Spiritual Leaders for your home. The problems we see in the World today is because we have a lack of households serving The Lord. Moral breakdown in society, without God nobody has accountability for there actions. If we want to change the World we need to start in our homes, is your family serving The Lord?
(Proverbs 22:6) “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
If you don’t teach your children then who will? The World? Children are not born with knowledge, they don’t know right from wrong, most importantly they don’t know God. If we don’t teach our Children about God nobody will. The World has removed God from everywhere including schools. Unless you teach your Children about God and The Bible, they will never know.
(Psalms 127:3) “Children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
We need to understand and appreciate that Children are Gifts from God. Modern day society likes to depict Children as a burden or being a parent as a death sentence. But it’s actually the opposite. We need to be grateful for our Children and cherish them. But if we neglect them they will not flourish also. We need to teach them the Word of God and let them know they are special and loved by there Heavenly Father.
(Genesis 18:19) “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.”
God chose Abraham to be the Father of many nations, because he knew he would teach his family about God and they would continue his legacy. When you fail to teach your Children about God and be a Spiritual Leader for your household you basically curse your blood line. Because if you Children don’t know God then there Children won’t know God either and so on. Eventually you have Generations of Godless people which bring moral decay to there nation.
(Ephesians 6:4) “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”
Paul preached about the importance of teaching our Children in a Godly way. When we have knowledge about the Word of God it gives us wisdom we can use to raise our Children. We learn to have the love and mercy of Jesus. But also we understand how much of a blessing our Children are and treat them as blessings. Children mimic there parents actions, so when we walk with God our children will walk with God also. In Jesus name Amen
