More and more parents state that they are losing their children. If you take a look on the statistics, you will notice that more than 50% of the teenagers raised in Christian faith walk away from it when they go to college. And the church does not offer parents any help, because they do not have any programs designed to help young people understand why Christian faith is so important. However, this is only a part of the problem, the Scriptures state that the solution can be found in every person, and they only need a little help to change their path. This is why it is important parents to discipline their children. God commands you to “train up a child in the way he should go” Proverbs 22:6. You will have to teach them every day the lessons offered by the Bible. Your priority as Godly parents should be to teach your kids the biblical truth.
Children will not learn on their own
If you do not teach them, your children will not desire or love God, so your role is to teach them the Biblical truth. Yes, there are cases when people come to the Lord when they read the Bible, but these cases are very few. You should check the lessons offered by messageofchange.com which will help your little ones understand them. But God’s desire is that people come to Him and walk with Him through discipleship. God’s desire is that children become disciples. If you do not explain them the important of loving God, they will not understand it.
The people of the world are leading your children astray
The apostle Paul warned people that they can be easily deceived and if they have bad company then their good morals could be corrupted. Therefore, when your children meet their friends and other people, there are great opportunities to be influenced away from God. You have no idea what your children talk about with their friends, the majority of conversations do not glorify God. Also, you should know that at school children are taught that God is not real.
Electronic devices can lead your children astray
Kids are influenced away from God by Facebook, online videos, music, movies and all the other programs they can watch on TV or online. Musicians, entertainers and other advertisers do not shape their attitudes and values toward Christ. Therefore, you have to make sure that your children’s mind is not filled with the world’s messages, but you teach them the importance of the Bible. Also, they should be aware that salvation is not achieved by repeating the same words in a prayer daily, but they have to change their heart being and mind into the spirit of God and walking with Jesus. Do not be deceived. Others have a great influence on the behavior and thinking of your children. The time they spend in the church is not enough to help them learn and walk in the truth. Those hours are not even enough to combat the influences they receive at the school and through their devices. So you have to teach them that Jesus is real and to love and walk with Him.
