Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Being a parent is not just a responsibility or a life goal ,its a higher calling from God. People complain about todays society or todays youth, but what have you done to mold this generation? Have you raised your children with morals and integrity, have you raised them to know Jesus?
Many parents today just want to be their kids “friends”. They want to lavish them with gifts and trips and clothing, but how will this profit their children when they are adults? Today we see a generation of kids with no work ethic, no knowledge of God, no moral responsibility to their neighbor. These things must be taught at home , in their youth.
Many want the educational system to raise their children, dump them off at school and let it be the teachers problem. Nobody wants to be the “bad guy” to say this is right and this is wrong. Everyone wants to be the “fair weather friend” , take a selfie and show the world how great we are. But inside its all fake, their is no substance to the relationship
The reality is kids love discipline. If you explain to the child , this is why I’m doing this or this is why you shouldnt do that, they understand, and they love and respect you for looking out for them. We dont know what we dont know, if nobody trains up the children , they never will know until its too late
You complain about an Atheistic generation, but when has your child ever saw you open the Bible and read it? When has your child ever saw you get on your knees to pray to God? When has your child ever saw you Love your Neighbor? Maybe never, thats why they are Atheist. Dont blame the Churches or the Pastors, blame the parents!
Raising up your children may be the biggest calling from God in your life! Remember whatever you have dont for the least of these you have done for Jesus Christ himself! (Matthew 25:40) Amen!
