Start children off on the way they should go and even
when they are old they will not turn from it.
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever
hates correction is stupid.Proverbs 12:1
principles have disappeared from society’s code of morals; children honoring,
respecting, listening, obeying parents and parent’s fear/belief of sparing a
child. Because of this disconnect, a seismic
shift in values has occurred in our communities. More so than anytime during
the existence of man, humanity has deemed morals to be devalued, or futile. In short, this new ideology has
replaced morality with vanity and egotism which has ruptured God’s foundation
of basic living. This immoral devastation
can be debated from various perspectives, however my heartache is caused by lost
souls of our children who have failed due to lack of knowledge; Honor your father and mother for your days
will be longer on this earth Exodus
20:12 . My eyes also stink from tears because youth walk in the way of
their heart and not in the sight of their eyes by not realizing God will bring them
unto judgment based on their ways. Yet, for some strange reason adults,
teachers, and parents who know these words are often afraid to practice what
was preached to them years ago because of public backlash for such “idiotic” beliefs.
A great deal of troubles which plaque our nation
come from not following God’s word or what people consider as correct. For example, parents have reversed roles;
allowing children to dictate what they want or Department of Human Services
mandating it unlawful to discipline your child.
So, is it illicit for me to spank my child if they are cursing,
stealing, or being defiant? By not enforcing some form of order children are
surely heading down a path of no return; death, prison or without a doubt self destruction!
Based on these findings one has to assume government would rather a child be
killed or imprisoned opposed to praying, teaching, Gods, word along with a
little whipping and a wailing.
The point I’m trying to make, all blame cannot be
placed on the shoulders of our adolescence, for they know not what they do, however
this burden should rest squarely on parents and adults who in many cases have
failed to educate or practice many of God’s ‘Golden Rules’ such as spare the
rod and spoil the child; for whoever spares the rod hates their children,but the one who loves their children
is careful to discipline them. Prov.
13:24. Go back to what you know worked from your mother, father, Big Mama, auntie,
or Ms. Mary down the street though you did not like the lectures, whippings, or
long days in church yet through it all you turned out fairly well!
Parents, raising children is harder today than
ever before yet sitting on most bookshelves or coffee tables is the best
parenting Manuel of all times The Holy Bible, pick it up teach your children
about God and his Majestic word before the difficult days come. For childhood and youth are a time of vanity
all else will fall short of joy and beauty until you [they] seek and know God!
