Msg #1308 Child Rearing's Two Laws
What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

Parenting; when a child misses God's two 'must-learn' commands they
never get to the 'should-learn' list. God targets children with only
two commands, fear your mother and father, and obey your mother and
father. (Lev 19:3, Eph 6:1) These capture the heart of the parent
child relationship and are the most persistent challenge of child
rearing; but still the most needed objective. God commands it of your
child and a parent's highest priority needs to be training these two
commands into their character. Hanging commands on a wall-plaque in
their room will not get it done. It will take consistent, persistent
discipline in daily life to get it done. That is the ingredient most
lacking in this generation and installing it into the next will
require a major change in how most do their parenting. The
strong-willed child which doctors may excuse is nothing more than a
child who has more will, more time, and more patience than their
parent, ergo they win every struggle and are in control. God's duel
commands will not excuse a so-called strong-willed child. A child who
does not fear and obey his parents has lazy, inept, or dysfunctional
parents. Put that child in the hands of a military drill sergeant or a
state shock-camp officer and they'll dig ditches and fold their
underwear into a perfect four inch square with no less than a
sir-yes-sir. The fault and problem is not with the child, it is with
the parent. Do it God's way, instill these two commands into your
child. You can do so only with God's 5 step program of Proverbs 19:18,
22:15, 23:13, 23:14, and 29:15 to get to 29:17 and avoid 17:25. That
will often require a parent's major change, but changing is better
than involving that shock-camp officer later on.
