”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
When we have children, training up our children is the first major event. 🤔 Especially in this tempting and dangerous world, leading children to walk the right path need to be taken seriously by every parent. As Christians, we should take the Lord’s teachings as the principles of our actions. Pursuing to know God and relying on Him in this evil age, fearing God and shunning evil are the most meaningful aim in life. Hence, leading children into the presence of God, teaching them to walk the right path with His words, teaching them to discern good from evil and shun evil, are the best way to train up children.
“Because the essence of God is holy, that means that only through God can you walk the bright, right road through life; only through God can you know the meaning of life, only through God can you live out a real life, possess the truth, know the truth, and only through God can you obtain life from the truth. Only God Himself can help you shun evil and deliver you from the harm and control of Satan. Besides God, no one and nothing can save you from the sea of suffering so that you suffer no longer: This is determined by the essence of God. Only God Himself saves you so selflessly, only God is ultimately responsible for your future, for your destiny and for your life, and He arranges all things for you. This is something that nothing created or non-created can achieve. Because nothing created or non-created possesses an essence of God such as this, no person or thing has the ability to save you or to lead you. This is the importance of God’s essence to man.”
We can understand the essence of God is holy from His word. He can guide us to know what is positive thing and how to discern good from evil. Only God takes responsibility for everyone’s life. And only we bring our children before Him can we break free from Satan’s disturbance and bondage; can we learn what is the meaning of life. After that, we are certain that training up children with God’s words is the best way to lead them to walk the right way. Thanks for God’s guidance, may Him be the head of our house so that we can worship Him with children and live out a meaningful life.
