And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.

To train OUR children in the way they should walk, reminds me of the time my daughter, who’s 14 today kept getting close to the electric socket, and stereo wires, in her infant years. No matter how much I told her “no“, and to “stay away“, she would crawl back to it, and repeat the same step over, and over again, as if it was some type of game she was playing.

I had to retrain her steps, not to get near it. I would say, “danger” and say “no” pick her up from the danger area, EVEN if it took me 10 times to do so.

To train is to repeat the same step over, and over again, until your child gets it.

To train is to assist and show the way by example, in words coupled with action. That is how our children learn, from example, not by force, but through repeated action.

when my girls were little, I would continually speak a word to them, then state my stance on it. It seemed as though I wasn’t getting through to them, until they got older.

Now they teach me, and I smile, because those were seeds I was planting, which now sprung up in their lives.

Too much force, or no action can create much damage, and rebellion will form. You don’t want to force anything on your children, you want them to willingly learn, through repeated action.

When you are older and your children are older, you cannot teach them the way you could when they were younger. Rather then regretting, and wishing you could, step into action now, and train your children to walk upright, while they are still in your home.

Parents we are responsible to God for our children. We are raising future leaders, and future spouses, CEO’s and Entrepreneurs. We must instill good values and principles into our children, so they can be responsible human beings, productive in society, and to their peers.

You see children walk away from God, because rebellion is formed towards God through our actions. The best example of Christianity, and good behavior is modeled at home. If we are cussing and acting a fool, living hypocritical lives, our kids will also examplify arogant and rebellious behaviours.

Reality check!

As parents we are accountable to God, and responsible for the way our children walk, and what they are taught. If we do everything in our power to be good examples, they will follow after, and be who we train them to be.

A good leader is not one that forces his way on others, but one who paves the way by example.

I pray we parents have our eyes open, and examine every step we take, because our little ones are following behind us. We want to present to them a good image of Christ, and not a polluted image that distorts and dishonors Christianity, and good behavior.

So, let’s keep inspiring and supporting our little ones to become their best selves. Nurturing and guiding them can make a world of difference.
