The biggest problems
in the world could have been solved when they were small! That is, if some
parents were not so 'dumb
Even an adopted child, if
care is taken to love and train, will become your very own child in all
the important ways:.Proverbs
29:21 "He that delicately.(original
is 'indulge them in life', 'train them', 'teach them about life' by taking
time with them and caring toward what they can become).brings
up his servant.(from
the time when many homes had servants).from
a child shall have him become his son at the length."
A lot of couples, in order
to have children, must adopt them, being unable of themselves for various
reasons, to produce their own. God can make it possible to have children.
The Creator did for others. He's no different today:.Malachi
3:6 "For I am the LORD, I change not..." Hebrews
Christ the same yesterday and today and for ever."
his wife and his maidservants were unable to have children. Abraham prayed
for them and God healed the cause of their infertility:.Genesis
20:17,18 "So Abraham prayed unto God and God healed Abimelech and his
wife and his maidservants and they bare children. For the LORD had fast
closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's

are those adopted into
8:5,23 "For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after
the Spirit the things of the Spirit...And not only they but ourselves also
which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within
ourselves waiting for the adoption to wit.(to
redemption of our body."
are Israelites, to whom pertains
the adoption and the glory and the covenants
and the giving of the law and the service
of God and the
promises." Galatians 3:26 "For
you are all the children of God
by faith in Christ
Emmanuel." Galatians 4:5 "To
them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons."
1:5 "Having predestinated us unto
the adoption of children by Emmanuel the Christ to himself according to
the good pleasure of his will."
-Many kids want to rush
life and rush at life when their hormones begin to race. They long to rush
away from all grounding principles, parents, education and into the 'exciting
world' out there through their friends. They become anxious to try this
and that. This ultimately will result in what they become.
Better to become the best
one can be through proper
education and exposure to quality friends and circumstances, sound
decisions being necessary. These are effective mentors
for the child's good. And, here parents play a very important part.
We become who and what we
identify with. Thus the need for quality education first. Once one finds
who he is, personality, capabilities, etc., it is easier to decide what
to do in life. Education should center around emotions as much as
it does around facts and figures. We can often tell what kind of past a
child is going to remember by observing his present ways!
Your children are under the
Creator's protection and blessing if you are a Creator minded person:.1Corinthians7:14
"For the unbelieving husband is sanctified
by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband, else
were your children unclean but now are they holy.".Children
may leave off following your good example for awhile as they get into the
teener years, but all is not lost:.Proverbs
-Some adults do not like
children around. Emmanuel was not like that. Emmanuel picked kids up and
had a special blessing for them:.Mark
10:13-16 "And they brought young children to him, that he should touch
them. And his disciples.rebuked
those that brought them. But when Emmanuel saw it, he was much displeased
and said unto them, Suffer.(allow).the
little children to come unto me and forbid them not. For of such is the
kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive
the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he
took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them and blessed them."
One fellow likes to live
across from a school yard. He is all alone. He likes the sound of children
playing and laughing. He says it is music to his ears and food for his
soul. Such are the protectors of children.
-Bring up your children with
the knowledge of God:.2Timothy
3:15 "And that from a child you have known the
holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through
faith which is in Christ Emmanuel." Proverbs
8:32 "Now therefore hearken unto me.(an
speaking of wisdom).O
you children. For blessed are they that keep my ways."
Bring up your children with
a good knowledge of life. Isn't that better than abandoning their minds
and emotions to be negatively affected by garbage information.
Teach them a small prayer
they can pray to God with before going to sleep. Here's
Many parents brought up
in the free love, anything goes, no discipline needed sixties, failed to
provide needed structure for their children, thinking it wise instead to
allow a child to choose for him or herself when older. This disastrous
philosophy simply allowed the influences of society to mold these parents'
children, enslaving them to the results of the ignorance of their parents.
That's really too bad, when
are left off in favor of what these non thinking parents erroneously
believed to be freedom. This produces non thinking children who unable
to make choices as to good and bad, simply accept selfish desires as always
being ok. Such children become rude
adults, disrespectful of others and angry
at the world, possessing little idea of how
to handle themselves in various
