It doesn’t take much to see that our children are in serious trouble because of all the problems they are going through. The use of drugs, alcohol etc. is increasing at an alarming rate. The harm children are doing to, not only each other, but to others is also getting worse almost daily.
It is my opinion, not only from my personal experience, but what I see everyday, that the answer can be found in the home. Parents need to be parents, but they also be ministers to their children.
There is no doubt in my mind that when babies comes down the birth canal, they have the gift of love in their hearts and brains from God. If you, as a parent, love your child, you need to – and should want to – do the best possible for your child. They need the love, acceptance and discipline that can only come from the parents. If you don’t minister to your child, I guarantee there will be someone out there that will. I also believe that you will not be happy with the lifestyle that your children will become involved in, if you truly love your children.
I was inspired to write this book prior to my wife’s passing, to share with people that even after having a bad start in life, a person can be changed with a life with Jesus Christ. My wife and I had 43 years of marriage. We also had a son and daughter in that time. They are both married now and live a life with Jesus Christ, raising their children the same way they were raised.
The bottom line is, children are a gift of God and need to be shown the love that they deserve. They truly need it and want it.
I encourage each of you to take a look at your own children and see if you can make any changes to make all of your lives better. I suggest that you read in your bible, Matthew Chapter 6 Verses 25-34. This is where Jesus says He will take care of your needs. All He asks is that you believe and more importantly follow Him.
Remember one thing, It’s Your Decision. May God bless you and your family on this Christmas Holiday.
