Teaching The Next Generation
It seems like we are becoming less and less social, we have far lower standards and our lack of morals, and self respect, living in a selfish and self gratification world.
Not everyone of course but so many adults ,young adults and children have allowed God to fall out of their vocabulary.
Just look at the states of our nation today, what do you see?
It’s been a crap shoot for at least 2-3 decades and as time goes on it appears to become more and more of an ungodly world.
The Bible says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Ps. 33:12), but this is not a popular belief in our society.
I see grown adults that were in church fist fighting at children’s baseball games swearing at refs.
I see adults and young adults and children have the “hell with you attitude “.
They want to do what they want, say what they want, live how they want with no respect for anyone, no respect for parents , family, or fellowman ir in many cases no respect for themselves.
I have seen this happening for the past 30 years
Some people feel the world owes them something when others feel they are not worthy of anything.
I personally think this all stems from when the Supreme Court ruled to remove prayer in schools. I believe that was back in the 60s.
Do you know even many colleges don’t even offer religion/theology studies.
So if you or a family member did want to pursue a life in ministry good luck finding them a school close to home that will offer it.
Sadly adults are setting a poor example of godliness and living a Christian life to our children.
But they seem to be scholars at showing how not to be a Christian.
Im 55 and have noticed that more and more people don’t talk about God , Jesus or the Bible.
Actually to be honest people hardly talk at all. You see people trying to connect on social media yet they can’t or won’t shut their phone off at a family dinner table.
It’s not just the kids , the parents are leading the way.
They are to busy on their cell phones to really have a normal conversation.
So we now have a society that has lost how to communicate to have a conversation with a real human being.
And I feel we removed the moral fiber — that moral emphasis – this is what is the the result.”
Since 1963, said there have been five negative developments in the nation’s public schools:
• Academic achievement has plummeted, including SAT scores.
• Increased rate of out-of-wedlock births
• Increase in illegal drug use
• Increase in juvenile crime
• Deterioration of behavior in school and respect for family and people in general.
We cannot expect our youth to be obeying God word when many adults show them they don’t have to.
It’s our responsibility to train and teach them Gods word and to obey it.
I am not saying we have to be perfect we’re humans we will never be perfect. We are flawed and make mistakes , but we need to start getting more people back to God.
Just because I’m a Christian doesn’t mean I have all the answers.
I have had my share of heartache pain and poor choices.
And just because I am a Christian doesn’t mean I won’t struggle or go through trying times.
But what I can tell you is being a Christian helps me do better, be better.
I don’t stress out over things that I would have in the past.
I know when I pray God hears me. I know that I cannot rush Gods will and plan for my life.
I know we need to reach people and teach them about God and that he really does have a plan for our life.
But if we don’t read the Bible get into a good church we may not hear what he is telling us.
It is our divine responsibility to teach our children and future generations about God.
So they can be equipped to face life and understand they are a child of God.
And that they can learn the will of god for their lives.
It’s every generations responsibility, we can’t skip a generation
Listen carefully it’s very important
And our father’s have told us
Tell for the generations to come
We will not conceal them from the children .
Teach for their children
And then their children
Keep the commandments
Think about that ,way back long before Jesus was born it was written to teach about God.
They didn’t have the Bible like we do.
It was talked about parent to child. As God commands.
We know people who never open a Bible.
They don’t have time ,
Teach by instruction and example the truth of God’s word which results in a desire to walk obediently before God in power of the Holy Spirit.
You will tech by example whether u like it or not- how you act how u speak-no one can expect a person to be perfect in parenting we all screw up.
But it’s our responsibility to tech our children as commanded by the word of God.
Be consistent in what you say and what you do.
Don’t teach Gods word then show hate.
Don’t teach Gods word then be critical and hurtful to others.
Don’t teach Gods words and yet never follow them yourself.
Because you will teach also by your example than you realize.
I have a testimony and you have a testimony.
We have had ups and downs and have gone through many things in our life. And God has brought us through it all.
It is our responsibility to teach
If you were a drunk or drug addict and turned your life around by the grace of God you are to tell your testimony to help your children and others
If you were abused it’s up to you to teach your children
Don’t let professors others teach your children about the word of God, you be the instructor.
There are things in my life and your life
We are to teach them to obey the word of god
If you have been saved by the grace of god you have a testimony and he has lifted you through all problems
That is your message
You have a story to tell
And the Bible says we must teach it to our children
There are so many things that can trip us up.
We have generations of people that’s to our slacking in the word of God they don’t believe or you haven’t sat down and asked them
Where are you in your Christian Life?
What do you believe?
Shocking you will find some not interested, doesn’t believe, or have never been taught the word of God.
Today we have to be diligent in teaching the word of God.
We have a generation today not all but a lot who know god ,don’t want to know god , they don’t know the word of god, don’t make time to learn and we have a Godless gap now by what we created.
We created and taught them to be anti god anti scripture we are setting them up for a life of turmoil.Because we didn’t teach them the word of God.
When we need to cover our children in the word of God is like a buffer of protection.
We teach them right from word, raise to be strong in Gods word.
call on God , read your Bible daily. If we don’t do this they won’t be able to determine right from wrong if we don’t teach them about God.
There are many things in this word that’s evil just waiting to grip our society.
I feel if we diligently teach about gods word they will be more grounded than if they never had been taught about God.
This way if they leave home they will covered and grounded to learn to stand on their faith vs looking for comfort elsewhere.
Parents grandparents must start stepping up.
Talk to your children – grandchildren everything that is true come from s God.
Things that are not biblical are not.
Start with genesis 1:1
We have a society that sadly is more interested in self gratification
You live your children
You buy them clothes -food -car
Do you love them enough to deal with them in their spiritual life?
The creator of all things
Then talk about Jesus
How our sins are forgiven
Crucified Died and Risen
You know enough to get people saved. And to save their life.
But have you shared all this with our kids? Grandkids?
It’s a line of truth that should never be broken
Ask your child what they believe
If you don’t you not fulfilling the commandments set for you by god. And we are allowing our children to self destruct.
Tell it like it is
Share gods word
God lives in us all and as a believer god will lead you.
Just open your Bible and see for yourself.
God leads me everyday to a verse to help me in my life.
Ask Hod to speak to you.
I promise you he will.
He will be clear
I learned the most going through pain, trouble, difficulty, hardships , loss and instead of turning to things I turned to the word of God.
Share what God has taught you. There are many around you tired depressed weary ready to give up.
Teach your children and grandchildren and teach others
It’s what God commanded.
If you need Jesus
I am a sinner and I have sinned I ask you to please come into my life , forgive me and teach me your word.
Once you say this you are forgiven
and get into the word of God , find a good bible based church.
May you all have a blessed day.
