#13 Happy Parents

18 Sep

God’s Word:  Proverbs 23:15,16,

God’s Message to Me:

It is vitally important that you take the time to train your children.  Your children need to know “who” is in charge in the home.  In far too many homes the children are in charge.  They can get their way by the tantrums they throw or the painful words they spew out.  I charge the parents with the task of being in charge and responsible for the way their children behave.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.  Better parenting skills would result in empty prisons.  At any given time, in your world today, millions are in prison around the world.  Can you imagine the heartbreak of those millions of parents who mourn for their children’s foolish choices?

If you hope for your children to make wise choices as adults, you must train them with restraint while they are very young.   My charge to parents is to train their children to prepare them for productive lives as adults.  The end result is happy parents because their children have learned to make wise decisions.  Restrain your children when they are young and when they are adults your heart will dance and sing as they live productive and honest lives. 

God’s Question to Me:  What kind of example are you setting for your children—emotionally, physically, financially and spiritually?

God’s Promise to Me:   I am always present and eager to help the parents who will invite Me to help in their parenting.
