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.
God institutionalized marriage for a purpose.
Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth (Mal. 2:15 NLT).
If you are not raising godly offspring, you are not fulfilling the purpose of God for marriage. Your children were given to you by God and your duty is to train them in the way of the Lord remembering that you will give account for them.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6 KJV).
In order to be a good teacher, you must have gained mastery in the area you are to teach. As a godly parent, you are to teach God to your children. This requires that you know God and know His ways.
You also must be able to know the way of God that is peculiar to that child and teach him to walk in it. All parents, therefore, must learn the art of asking and receiving from God so they may receive specific instruction concerning each child. Read Genesis 25:22-23.
Hebrews 11:23 (KJV) By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.
Go into today making up your mind to raise godly seeds. Remember to consider your children’s spiritual welfare when decided where they would have their academic studies. Too many children from Godly homes have been subverted because their parents sent them to study in godless environments.
Say the confession: I am blessed. My family is Blessed. Everything about me is blessed, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
