When life on earth begins we are completely dependent on loving parents to care for us, feed us, hold us and watch over us. As time goes by and the phases of life change a child begins to learn about interacting with others in the world, all the while the father and or mother each offer their unique perspective based mostly upon their own experience with their parents. The generations go on…unfortunately the family structure has been under attack by darkness and evil for a long time now and in today’s society the vast majority of people are ruled by selfishness and they show little respect for family or parents mainly because of how people who are given the gift of children have not honored their role of parenthood. When we become parents, we should be prepared to sacrifice things in order to help a child become a contributing adult in community. One of the greatest joys of parenthood is watching your child succeed and do well because you were willing to have patience and willing to be persistent in doing what God has asked you to do with the gift of a child. We are all God’s children and He is patient and persistent in loving us. We would do well to pass it on. May God’s peace be with you.
“Train a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.”
