God’s way is the Only way

By
Gwendolyn Ransom

“Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of correction will drive it far from him.” Proverbs 22:15

Yesterday when I was at work, I noticed a co worker appeared to be intoxicated on medication. This was the second day for it so I decided to approach her about it. She claimed she was taking it because of a recent car accident. I didn’t believe her, because it wasn’t the first time I had seen her in that condition.

A few minutes later, she called her father, and he came up to the place of business and he gave her a hand full of pills. She took them. She stayed in the bathroom for about fifteen minutes. When she came from the restroom, I informed her that she had to go home. I did not approve of the abuse of pills, and she was going to do this while she was working with me. She tried to convince me to allow her to stay but I wouldn’t.

The fact that she was only eighteen, and abusing pills bothered me. So I approached her uncle about the matter. He informed me that her father knows what she is doing, and to keep himself out of harms way, he allows this girl to do whatever she wanted. He went on to say, he refused her once, and she called child abuse and he was temporarily dismissed from the home for three weeks, so to maintain peace in the household, he allows whatever she wants.

My heart began to break, and I begin to pray. I realized something horrible. Some parents have stopped raising their children. Rearing begins at a young age, and it doesn’t stop when a child becomes a teenager. It is in the nature of a child to become rebellious especially when they haven’t been taught about God, but we cannot allow children to make us fear.

There are many parents which are afraid of their children, and it happens more often they we are aware of. I raised a son, as a single parents, and I never allowed him to speak to me other than respectfully. And today, he is my inheritance because the love of God is shown in him.

Discipline takes courage and time. No one likes it, but it something which has to be done. God always corrects his children, and we are more productive and much more appreciative for it. Most of all, we respect him as the ruling authority. He gave this same power to parents. He will hold us accountable for not doing our best as parents.
Most children who are not disciplined at a young age cannot relate to adults. And most of them begin to speak rudely to other adults in the same manner of their parents.

My prayer is this:

Father, in the name of Jesus, help us to raise our children in this generation. So they may be who you have destined them to be. Let them know they are cutting off there blessings. Father, we rebuke the power of the enemy over their lives. In Jesus Name. Amen
