TRAIN UP YOUR CHILD
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*TRAIN UP YOUR CHILD.*
Prov 22:6 *Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Every child as he/she grows will begin to show attitudes that will ultimately define him/her.
There will be a time in the life of a growing child that will be a defining moment.
This moment in his/her life will give an indication of the kind of child he will become or has become.This moment can be positive or negative.
Either we train or refuse to train our children, we can be sure each option will have an end.
Training a child well will have a transformative effect on the child.
God demands that children be trained.
It is also true that somebody other than parents have to teach and train children.
Training is a process and it requires discipline and only a disciplinarian can achieve much.
It takes a God fearing disciplinarian and a willing child to achieve great results.
Babies may not have to learn to say or have difficulties with calling "daddy, mummy" but babies do not jump out of the cribs and begin to respect people.
They have to go through a process of training.
Many parents have left out the word "train a child".
They may help their children with homework etc but what about teaching them to respect elders, how to talk to elders, home chores etc?
Our children must be taught honor.
When you honor people, you honor yourself, when you honor others, you honor yourself.
A well behaved and respectful child is traceable to a proper and Godfearing home training.
The home is the foundations of training.
The church children's classes and the schools are just an extension of the foundation that has been laid in the home.
When children grow up to be rude, it simply means someone has not done the right thing in training them.
You cannot afford to start training them too late in life. Studies have shown age of 2-3 years is a good start. Seek to know your child and the best time to start with them.
A child you fail to train early will be difficult to absorb training when he is grown up, Prov 19;18, 22:6.
Children are smart and they know what they are doing, Prov 20:11.
They experiment on trying foolish things to sample if their experiments will be condoned. Their foolishness must be resisted and Godly rod of discipline and fear instilled in them. It will not kill them, Prov 22:15, 23:13,14
Are you training your children?
Many parents are good at chastising other children whereas they are aggressively defensive when it comes to handling their own children. Train your child.
*Call to Word action.*
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
Prov 13:24 *Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Prov 13:24 *He that spares his rod hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him betimes.*
Lord, help me to train my child early enough, while he/she may yet be influenced rightly, and before faults are rooted in him/her, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
