“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers” (Psalm 1:1 NIV).
As parents, it is our responsibility to teach our children the Word of God and instill in them the fact that God has a specific purpose for their lives. If we don’t, they will become bored and frustrated with life. They will begin following the advice and plans of the ungodly and hanging around sinners and submitting to their lead. Eventually, they will sit down in the seat of the scornful, relaxing in a life of sin, complaining about everything and everybody.
However, our children do not have to follow that path. We can train up children who will flourish and prosper (Psalm 1:2-3 NIV).
The Take Away:
Let’s teach our children who God says they are and instill in them a great confidence that they have an amazing, God-given purpose for their lives!
