As a Christian I know not to worry (Philippians 4:6-7), but I do have concerns and my most important concerns are for my children. I’m sure the same is for most, if not all of you with children too.
I’m concerned about unseen yet preventable dangers. I read the news, I hear the stories. Those things that make a parent wish they had chosen differently…
There’s so many decisions we face as parents. We’re responsible for the places we allow our children to go, what we allow them to participate in, and who we allow them to hang out with. We are responsible for shaping their character and teaching them about God and what his will is for them according to his word (the bible).
Who or what am I allowing to be the main influencer in my child’s life? As for me, my hope and instruction is found in His Word. I believe the bible. I trust God.
Be encouraged from God’s word! He has promised to preserve pure, his word according to Psalm 12:6-7 :
“The words of the Lord are pure words:
as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O Lord,
thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
