Developing Secure Children!

Whosoever loves wisdom rejoices his father. (Prov. 29:3) 

If parents were to ask me, "What is the greatest gift we could give our young child?" 
I would answer rather quickly: a sensitive spirit. That is especially rare among busy parents who live under the demands of hurried schedules, constantly doing battle with the tyranny of the urgent. Nevertheless, my counsel to you would be, give your child the time it takes to find out how he or she is put together. Help your child know who he or she is. Discuss those things with your children. Help them know themselves so that they learn to love and accept themselves as they are. Then, as they move into society that seems committed to pounding them into another shape, they will remain true to themselves, secure in their independent walk with God.

I have begun to realize that secure, mature people are best described in fifteen words. They know who they are . . . they like who they are . . . they are who they are. They are real

Growing Wise in Family Life 

As a single, adult man who aspires to get married and have a family that I can call my own, this particular post is especially fascinating and further reinforces my preparation for family life even further. This particular post emphasizes on developing secure children. 

Our present generation of children are our future in everything we presently do now. For those of us who are Christians, it is imperative that we raise our children in the fear of the Lord. I won't pretend to be an expert on child rearing, but as a casual observer and researcher, I have learned that children have a knack for absorbing information during their infancy. 

Assuming this to be true, shouldn't those of us who are Christian parents put the above information to the test by instilling those biblical values and principals into those kids during their infancy? My dear friends, we owe it to God, ourselves, and this precious world we live on to see to it that we develop children that are secured in Christ and in themselves. 

Want to see the future of this world revolutionized for Christ? See to it that your children are developed and secured in Christ! Why? Because those of us (including myself) will be determined and more enthusiastic about becoming parents to godly children and will be comfortable in knowing that they are secured eternally regardless of the way their lives develop during their latter years. 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' precious name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
