There is certainly a teaching today that kids have the right to make their own choices. That counsel includes what they want to do, become, behave, believe.
Is it God’s plan for us to leave our kids on their own to figure out this world?
Hear me. Absolutely not!
It is our responsibility as parents to teach and train our children what God wants for them.
We are to set guidelines, rules, expectations, and determine consequences. It is exactly the way Scripture has been lined out for us. It is the way for us to be successful. It is the way for our kids to be successful.
“Trouble pursues the sinner, but the righteous are rewarded with good things. A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. An unplowed field produces food for the poor, but injustice sweeps it away. Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. The righteous eat to their hearts’ content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.” Proverbs 13:21-25
Follow God’s Word. Follow it to the letter of the law. It is all good!
I love Your Word. Help me to read it and apply it. I want to live by it.
