She Looketh Well to the Ways of Her Household



"Do not be mislead. Bad company corrupts good character. Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God--I say this to your shame." 1 Corinthians 15:33-34

Negative influences can have a profound effect upon our childrens lives if we are not careful. The Bible warns us not to be mislead, and we need this warning more than ever in the 21st century. The onslaught of wickedness is prevalent in our culture and we need to be a discerning people. Being able to wisely choose what is right and wrong in our culture and not succumbing to every whim that seems temporarily pleasurable. We could be doing considerable damage to our children and future generations by not being careful of the influences that we allow into their lives.

We want to have the hearts of our children in order to direct our children toward God and righteousness. We cannot do that well if we do not have their hearts (Malachi 4:6). Temptation towards worldliness can be a powerful force tugging their hearts away from God. We are told to be in the world and not of it and we need to take this warning seriously.

The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. Proverbs 27:12

In the next few posts I will be examining a few areas of interest:

Friends/Peers
Entertainment
Music
Role Models
Leisure Time
Clothing/Outward Attire
Hypocrisy of Parents: A Stumbling Block


I hope you will join me...

    1 Corinthians 15:33-34 are some of the main verses for why we homeschool.

  7. Thank you for posting this. It is coming at a point in my familys life that I needed this. I have one teenager and another one turning 13 in two months. Its a struggle cause they do not understand why we have rules in place. This is such an encouragement. Thank you. It gets lonely thinking that we are the only ones that have rules in place to protect them.

  12. I am really looking forward to your next posts.

    We used to be very protective of our children. We still are in many ways. Actually most people tell us we are too overprotective now. lol!

    I can see areas where we are slacking. Our family life has been pretty rough for the last 3 years and this is an area I can see that we have feel short on.

    Thanks for your encouragemnet.
