While celebrities are influential people, parents hold a place of greater influence in their children’s lives. You are your child’s first love, first toy, and first role model.
We must not allow our societies to become so progressive and liberal to the point that governments and celebrities begin to determine our family values and parental discipline techniques.
Then God said, “Shall I keep back from Abraham what I’m about to do? Abraham is going to become a large and strong nation; all the nations of the world are going to find themselves blessed through him. Yes, I’ve settled on him as the one to train his children and future family to observe God ’s way of life, live kindly and generously and fairly, so that God can complete in Abraham what he promised him.”
Genesis 18:17-19 MSG
Apt!. We should be Godly models to them. Teaching them and being there as He would want us to.
It’s sad a lot of folks are losing focus in this regard.
Thank you for the insightful comment. It is indeed sad. God help us 🙏
You’re absolutely right sis. We have to be role models to our children and teach them the ways of God. Even some tell me I’m not giving my children enough “free hand”. I tell them they are children of God and not children of the world. We shouldn’t allow just anyone determine the way we train and discipline our children. Great post
Thank you for the personal reflective comment. Mama, do what’s best for your children. Sometimes, people act like they can raise our children better than.
Yes o sis❤️.
I agree 100%!!!
Proverbs 22:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
6 Train up a child in the way he should go,
[a]And when he is old he will not depart from it.
That’s a scripture we can always bring to God and hold on to. Thank you for sharing.
Well said! Moms and dads set the tone for their child’s adult life. Other influences pale in comparison.
Thank you for reflecting with me.
