Don't Give Up

Her children rise up and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:28 (NIV)

"On March 7, 1774, the British passed the Boston Port Act, closing the harbor to all commerce to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. The surrounding towns rallied to their aid by secretly sending food to the inhabitants of Boston.

Colonel William Prescott, wrote:

Providence has placed you where you must stand the first shock... if we submit to these regulations, all is gone. ….. Now if we should give up, can our children rise up and call us blessed? ”(American Minute, Bill Federer)

This is not the time to give up. Our children depend on us to stand against government regulations and cultural tolerances that impede our religious freedoms, weakening our Christian foundation. Unifying the community of believers to act and affirming the teachings of Christ in our homes will make a difference.

On the surface, we do the right things as a Christian family. We attend church and serve in ministry. As an author and Bible teacher, I pray, read God’s Word, give tithes, and help the poor. Many have called me “blessed”, but, what about my children? With all that I do, are my children realizing a Divine purpose in their lives so they know who they are and why they were created? This is a challenging question and my answer is sure, I will fight the good fight of faith. We are determined this New Year to raise our children with a focused Christian culture, so they will not be swept away by the world’s seduction. Will you join us?

God help us to teach our children as you commanded our ancestors, so the next generation will know you, Lord and trust in You. Psalms 78:5-7 (NIV)

Great writing. I wish every parent would read this devotional, pick up the Bible and read, "Train up a child the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 God bless you and your writing.
