Training Children ~

In good homes, children are taught to obey. “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” {Ephesians 6:1}
“Listen to your father who begot you, And do not despise your mother when she is old.” {Proverbs 23:22} Children are a blessing to parents who assume their responsibility to teach them to obey.

These characteristics yield cooperation, harmony, peace, joy, and love. Bickering, arguing, strife, and bitterness do not exist in godly homes. Is your home a godly home? If not, is it your fault? What do you need to change? Will you accept the challenge in order to please the Lord and reap the benefits of a happy home?

This demands training and discipline, through which the child learns by experience, as well as by instruction. In the home, children are to learn, through experience and teaching:
~Respect for authority,
~Good manners,
~Principles of industry,
~How to honorably discharge their responsibilities,
~The value of selecting the right companion (1 Cor.15:33),
~To “seek first the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 6:33)

Please be assured my friend, it takes TIME to instill these things in the heart of a child. The pressures of our modern society can and often do take precedence over our children’s training. We cannot afford to let Satan win any battles where our children are concerned.

    Those tangled curls and smudgey hands grow up one day to be souls in the kingdom of God!
