Parents, You Can’t Be Cowards!

"Today, recognize and keep in mind that the Lord is God in heaven above and on earth below; there is no other. Keep His statutes and commands, which I am giving you today, so that you and your children after you may prosper and so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you for all time." ~ Deuteronomy 4:39-40

We’re constantly told that the truths, warnings and commandments revealed in the Bible are old-fashioned — they no longer apply. The result? Young people sucked into the sewers of sin. Homes coming apart at the seams. The slaughter of millions of precious unborn babies. Nations in chaos.

May God give us wisdom to help our young people. Surrounded by this culture, they may as well be standing in tall, dry grass with a box of matches. We’re pushing young people into situations they’re neither emotionally nor mentally prepared to handle.

Whatever happened to letting children be children? God have mercy on us who stand by while boys and girls date at the age of ten, get married by seventeen, and divorced before they’re old enough to vote.

As parents we should be consistently pointing our children to the eternal truth of the Word of God — not what culture around them says. As Dr. James Dobson has written, “Parenting Isn’t for Cowards.”

Are you a parent? I challenge you today to get back to the Word of God. Stand up to the pressures of society. Draw your teens into your home with love. Form a prayer group of parents and teens. Do whatever it takes to rescue your children before it’s too late.

~ excerpt from: Love Worth Finding, with Pastor Adrian Rogers
