Train up a child in the way of God

Train up a child in the way he should go,

And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

Today we can see how children are being taught different things that lead them to disobey both the law and each of the people around them.

The Bible teaches us that as parents we must teach our children to follow the ways of the Lord, to teach them the good and not the bad as it is happening in these times, as we are seeing today, as parents give them alcoholic beverages to their children, where they teach them to do the wrong thing and do not teach them to respect, but for this reason they deviate to do the wrong thing.

Here we can see this verse where it says that we must instruct the child in the way, so that even in his last days he does not turn away from God but he remains practicing justice and continues doing the good and teaching about the Word of the Lord.

We can see how the Bible mentions us in some books about teaching our children how we should raise them, as it says in this verse. In Isaiah 54:13:

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, And great shall be the peace of your children.

Isaiah 54:13

Telling you that you must teach your children so that peace is multiplied in your home and in every place where your children walk, that’s why it is necessary for your children to be well taught in such a way that they never think of doing evil as happens today.

Here is another example found in the book of Genesis 18:19:

For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”

Father, mother, here this verse is encouraging you to order your children to keep the way of the Lord, to teach your children to do good so that they may walk in the good way that is for salvation.

This advice is for you father, show your children the way of the Lord, instruct them in the way, teach them who God is, so that when they grow up they can say “I practice the good and the justice of God because my parents instructed me on the way since I was little and now I can continue to help my children to follow my example and help other children to follow the good so that peace can abound in each of their homes”, that is why it is of greater importance that you as a father educate your children, tell them what is good and what is bad and so your home will be blessed and prosperous by God.

    Train up a child in the way of God
    ======================
    Probably some of us who read this biblical page have a family, and God have blessed us with some child.
    I see today’s article is very necessary for people, be they at the present time believers or not.
    Kids must be taught in God’s fear, to help them to live wisely in this depraved world, which exerts so great an influence and would drag them and others to hell. Children need help and advice to leave evil companies behind.

    “Train up a child in the way he should go,
    And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

    In general, people are trained up to do an activity in sports, in the navy or the army; and also to be useful in a job. In all activities, people with moral values are needed, and Christian training tries to change evil behaviours, so that Christians can be the salt of the earth, as Jesus said:
    “You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his flavor, with which shall it be salted”
    (Matthew 5:13)

    All things have a beginning, and kids are the basis of the future. A building with a good foundation remains strong and firm through the times, and a society with morally sound people is a reliable society.
    The world needs true Christians, people with a morality that is shaped by the Bible.

    The role and labor of parents in the family is vital and very important:
    mother and father, without anyone substituting or ever standing in for them at home. Their presence and good example are very important for their children: a Christian upbringing may, in adulthood, be good for them among ungodly people. They should be the salt of the earth.

    We know that many parents are busy with a job outside home, and so they are not able to assist or to be properly involved in bringing up their kids. That has been a difficult problem to solve for parents in all times and, particularly, in our so-called modern civilization.
    As we observe today’s world, we can see some consequences of our actions, if we, Christian parents, have neglected our duties towards our children.

    We must be grateful to God for all responsible parents who have taught their children in the fear of God. We must pray to the Lord God that He may be pleased to provide for every family’s and parent’s needs—and yes, that parents may be given the wisdom they need to carry out the duties of such an admirable vocation.

    May the Lord God help us to be responsible Christian parents, in order that we may follow well our vocation to educate our kids. And let us do that thinking about their eternal futures, so they can also help others in the way of salvation
