QUOTES ON TOP

You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

JOY FILLED PARENTING - 1 (CHOOSE EVERYTHING FOR YOUR CHILD IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY GROW IN GOD)



“...Let the children come to me and do not hinder them...” – Mark 10:14

When Abraham was old, God gave him a son and he named him Isaac. Abraham grew very old and the Lord had blessed him in every way. He had all the riches and blessings. As he grew old he wanted to find a girl for his son. Though he had so many things in his life, he had chosen a girl for his son in a careful manner.

We can read about that in Genesis 24. Abraham knew that he has to entrust the responsibility to find a wife for Isaac to a trustworthy person. So he carefully picked the one. He called the senior servant who is the in-charge of all that he had and asked him to find a wife for Isaac.

Abraham’s choice was right and his servant found Rebekah as wife of Isaac. Isaac was comforted through Rebekah after his mother’s death. Abraham did a right thing for his son. 

When you have to choose something for your child, you have to make sure that it will be good for them and it will not hinder them to come to God. 

Few days back I was watching a special program about mothers. A woman said that they were from a middle class family so she has to go to work even after her child was born. Though her husband was working she also went to work to provide for the family. So they found a servant to look after her little child. For a few days everything was going normal. 

After that she found out that her servant was addicted to TV serials(dramas). Since the servant was very fond to watch TV serials, she taught that little child also to watch those serials so that she won’t be disturbed during that time. 

One day the mother got leave and so she stayed at home. The little child was watching her mother at the specific time in which she usually goes for the job. But as she had leave, she stayed even after that usual time. So the child came to the mother and asked her when she will leave since the child knew that the mother will not allow anyone to watch serials and movies. 

As the child was forcing the mother to leave, she clearly understood the problem and later found out everything that was going in her home. When she heard that her little child is getting addicted to unnecessary things, she felt so sad. She was so worried about her child’s future because she always wanted to raise her child in a way that pleases God. 

So she prayed to Jesus and asked His wisdom to take decision. She felt that she has to leave her job so that she can teach about Bible to her child. She immediately left the job and now she is staying at her home spending time with her child. She was so happy about the decision she took even though the family will lack certain amount of income every month. She was happy because she had chosen a right choice for her child to be blessed in God.

My dear young friends, when you have to take a decision regarding your child’s growth, studies, job or family life, pray to God earnestly. Make sure that your decision will never hinder your son or daughter to grow in God. Your children soul is more important. So make sure that your children are moving close to Jesus and not away from Him. God bless you.
