Would you like to know how to create a monster, one that bears your same last name and possibly even looks like you? Raise your child in a child centered home where every decision is based on the happiness of the child. If you start at birth, you will be in complete misery by age 5 and in full blown rebellion by age 14. (rough estimates but when you are creating a monster who cares how long it takes) This is how we create a monster, ruin a family, possibly ruin a marriage and create a potential burden on society.
GOD is to be the center of your home, not the husband, not the wife, not any of the children. Let me be a little more specific about GOD, by GOD I mean JESUS, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Alpha and Omega. This is the JESUS that rightly makes the claim that He is the way, the truth and the life and that no man comes to the Father but through Him, in John 14:6
I do not want you to think I might be talking about any other god, but the ONE TRUE GOD who is JESUS. When you allow your home to be child centered, the child becomes your god. When your child decides whether, or not, your family goes to church, or when your child’s activities keep your family out of church, you are living in a child centered home.
The decisions you make in your home are to be made seeking GOD first. Not only is this the best possible way for your family, you are also teaching your children to seek God first. When we fail to do this, and I have at times, we are creating the background and foundation for the future decision making ability of our children.
We have the Bible for a reason and it is extremely relevant and deadly accurate for how to live life, for how to have a good marriage and for how to raise children. Yes, the Scriptures are ancient but more powerful, more alive and more needed in our lives today, than ever before. An all knowing, supernatural, loving and long-suffering, sovereign GOD wrote the Bible for you and for me, to give us the direction we need today in these modern times.
We would love to help you find what we have found in JESUS and in HIS HOLY Word, the Bible. We have found forgiveness, new life, peace, love and direction for everyday life. We hope you will keep reading our blog and we pray you find it helpful.
