People say, "What is wrong with children today?" The answer is, they don’t have parents who love the Lord and teach God’s guidance in the home (Proverbs 22.6, 1:8-19, 3:1-12, 4:1-27). Many wait until their children are teenagers before trying to teach them and many don’t teach at all. Some parents don’t even know the whereabouts of their children when it’s late at night! The parents gave birth and they must take responsibility and train their sons and daughters from infancy. A person cannot bend a 100-year-old tree, but he sure can bend a young tree. So the children must be introduced to God while still in their youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
Much evil is out there waiting to influence the young, but parents must teach the word of God so their children will understand righteousness and avoid the wrong paths (Prov. 4:1-27). School teachers always talk about how hard it is to get parents’ involvement in teaching the students and back to school meetings, etc. The same can be said about a child wanting to go to church and his parents don’t. Remember this parents—you cannot lead if you are sitting on your sofa with a beer watching TV on Sunday. You should be taking your children to church. You cannot teach them about God if you don’t know Him yourself, and now is the time to do something about that.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
