I met an amazing lady this morning. She is 82 years and still driving and working at one of the largest department stores in the United States. Just talking with her reminded me of how blessed I am. She was so lively and grateful for her life.
Recently I had been praying to the Lord about some things. This amazing lady was used of God to give me some of my answers.
As you know, I believe in helping children be their best. Part of that includes teaching them things. In order to teach someone something, you have to have a foundation and material. My foundation for teaching children is the Lord and my material is the Bible wisdom.
Many no longer believe, rely or accept the Bible as a foundational tool to teach children. But it is. This amazing woman I met this morning told me of how she was raised and how things taught to her kept her and prepared her for life. She went on to tell me that her husband was in the military and lost his life due to the Vietnam War. She told me about the 'fire and brimstone' preaching she heard in her youth. She told me things she was taught helped make her strong.
I still believe in fire and brimstone preaching, even for the 'millennial's'.
The word of God declares to "train up a child in the way they should go". This still applies today. And, if you read a little further in the Bible in the New Testament, you will find Jesus saying, "I am the way, the truth and the light" (John 14:6).
God's way is still the best way and the right way. Our children need something and someone greater than themselves to help them maneuver through this world.
Take your children to Church. Ask God to lead you to one that teaches the Bible way. Yes, there are more 'bad' churches than good ones. But, there are still some good ones. Psychology and therapy does not change the heart. Mind mapping does not change the heart. God can and does still change hearts.
Jesus still loves the world (John 3:16). The real question is does the world love Jesus?
"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
