|Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.|
|Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;|
|That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.|
|And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord|
It seems to me that most parents always hold the thing up to their children that they should obey and honour the parents.
They seem to think this is the only necessary point for the family to abide by. They seem to think the whole load of making the family run smoothly and in peace, lies on the shoulders of those children.
It is a trick of Satan to cause disruption and hurt and horrible consquences in life. children do not have the strength or capacity to carry this load and make the family work in harmony.
It is up to the parents, the grown people [?]- to make this happen.
that is why God said you fathers, do NOT PROVOKE YOUR CHILDREN.
Do not hurt them, say bad things about or to them, do not discourage them, do not run them down, do not curse them, do not beat them, do not critize them to others. And on and on I could go with the things parents do to hurt and discourage their children.
The more they cause hurt to the children the more the children will strike back and become hard to deal with. This in turn causes the parents to get upset and then they abuse the children, both verbably and physically.
This ought not to be. You should LOVE your children and TREAT THEM BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. Yet most parents treat their own children worse than any others in their lives. WHAT A SIN AND A SHAME.
Parents, get back to talking to and loving your children. Spend time with them. Don't just set them down to a TV or games or other things and ignor them. Show them you love them.
Pray with them. Read the Word of God to them. Sit and talk gently with them.
I am telling you all and warning you all, this abuse to children must stop. God is very angry at the way children are being mistreated in our world today. Their souls are being sent straight to hell fire because of a lack of training and love.
Why should you treat your own flesh and blood children so horribly? what is wrong with people? Why do so many men beat and abuse their wives and children?
Help us get people back to praying together and loving each other. Teach your children not to abuse their loved ones. Show them the right way of love and GENTLENESS.
Stop screeming at your children. Stop hitting them. But do correct them. Do this in love and WORDS OF INSTRUCTION.
People, slow down and love your families. Destruction is upon all who fail at this.
