Guide Your Children

13 And I declare to him that I am about to punish his house forever, for the iniquity that he knew, because his sons were blaspheming God, and he did not restrain them. ~ 1 Samuel 3:13ESV

Eli didn’t reprimand nor guide his two sons in any way. He didn’t raise them to fear God nor to love righteousness. Because of this, he brought punishment on himself and his entire household. This is like us today.

We say that our children are adults who can make their own decisions and parents have no control over them, but we should never turn a blind eye and refrain from addressing and correcting them. Children have to be guided so that they learn right from wrong. This is why we teach children not to touch the stove or not to put their finger in the light socket.

Children need to be taught right from wrong by their parents so that when they are older, they will do what is right. Even though our culture continuously changes, the fact that children need to be guided and taught right from wrong doesn’t change. It’s very important to correct your children when you know they are doing wrong against God, lest you and your children one day have to face the wrath of God.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Guide Your Children.
