There is quite a bit of wrong doing occurring in homes, and that has been proven by the bad behavior of high school students. When you have students beating up other students and going on downtown rampages, somebody hasn’t had the proper home training. The students' first steps are the home (maybe church if the parents go), the school, and the public. When you see a high school student, you are looking at the product of a home. In the home, a child is to be loved, fed, and taught how to be of good behavior. When you see respectful students doing well, you are looking at children from a home where sound teaching and discipline prevail (Proverbs 20:11).
Yes, parents share the blame and even if a son or daughter is rebellious, those parents must take the right steps to make sure their child doesn’t mislead or be misled (1 Timothy 3:4-5).
The buck starts and ends with the parents, and they need to do their job because God will hold them responsible along with the child (Ephesians 6:1-4; Proverbs 10:1; Colossians 3:20-21; Psalm 78:1-4; Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
