How Are You Morally Guarding Your Children?

October 7, 2020 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality.”

(1 Thessalonians 4:3)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

What has led to the moral impurity we see today? What has caused the situation that we find ourselves in? In the first place, the attitude of modern parents who cannot wait for their children to grow up.

  • We see boys and girls dating at the age of ten, going steady by the time they're thirteen, then we’re shocked when they’re in some sort of life-altering situation before they're old enough to vote.
  • Schools with sex education classes in kindergarten have done a lot of enabling here.
  • Unmonitored screen time is another culprit.

May God have mercy upon us.

ACTION POINT:

We’re pushing young people into situations they’re not emotionally and mentally capable of handling. Young people today find themselves playing with matches in dry grass. And we as parents must take responsibility. Are we protecting them or asleep at the wheel?
