What’s Missing Today?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

 

Proverbs 22:6 (NLT) |Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

In a time where we are seeing so much turmoil, in a day where we experience so much pain:

There are a few things that I see that are lacking, and many could be helped  “if” we would just stop for a minute and think.  I believe that we should go back to a few things and teach them clearly:

  • Integrity…  Doing what’s right when nobody sees you.
  • Honor …     Give honor to whom honor is due, appreciate the wisdom of those before you
  • Respect …   It’s earned, not lightly tossed around
  • Character… Learn who you are, and STAND for something that counts

We are missing this, we are not training our children and when they are not taught, it can bring shame to the parents. The Bible teaches us to train our children. Why do ‘we’ now feel that is so ridiculous or such a far fetched an idea?

Proverbs 22:6 (CEV)
Teach your children right from wrong, and when they are grown they will still do right.

Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)  
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
