Proverbs 30: 1-20
This is a wonderful text and reveals to us some great truths. In verses 11-14 God speaks to us about a wicked generation. This generation is spoken of in four ways, and all of these speak of the moral and spiritual state of the last days.
I. A GENERATION THAT HAS NO RESPECT FOR THEIR PARENTS VERSE 11.
You would think that this statement was taken out of the evening news. How very true of our generation today. I mean today we have children killing their parents and parents killing their children:
Years ago we heard about the Menendez brothers, Susan killing her two children by drowning and a few weeks later we had 2-3 parents kill their children right here near our area.
What has happened to us? Look at 2 Timothy 3:2 as one of the reasons; “disobedience to parents.”
Let me say a word to our parents on how to keep your children off drugs, sex, dirty movies, back talk, Aids, abortion, etc. MAKE THEM DO RIGHT BY YOU DOING RIGHT….Church attend is very basic…don’t expect your children to do it if you are not willing to pay the cost. One way or another you will.
SO, HOW CAN WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO HAVE RESPECT..?
- Teach them to LOVE THEIR PARENTS.
- ” HONOR “
- ” OBEY “
- “ UNDERSTAND “
