For those raising children about two-years-old, you are now in the best position to teach godly values to your son or daughter (Ecclesiastes 12:1). Number one, you are the parent and never give that control over to the child and make sure he knows that. Number two, set a wonderful example before your child and have him follow that example and make sure it is the way of life in your home. Number three, make sure that your child understands that disobedience carries punishment, and urge him to learn from the words of warning, rather than learning after suffering the consequences of wrong doing (Colossians 3:25; Proverbs 22:3). Number four, make sure that you understand that the word of God authorizes parents to discipline their children and to do so in a manner which is pleasing in the eyes of the Creator (Hebrews 12:9; Proverbs 22:6, 13:24, 19:18, 22:15, 29:15).
Finally let me say that having God and His word is more important than anything. We cannot have great homes and neighborhoods without the infallible Word serving as our guide (Psalm 119:105). I also know that people don’t want to hear about the Bible, but let God be true and every man a liar (Romans 3:4; 2 Timothy 4:1-5).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
