My thoughts for today might seem a bit scrambled. And I will blame that on too many political commercials or should we call it what it is and say too much mud-slinging by the candidates. Are you like me and inundated information that says each man is the best and if elected he will turn this country around and once again make us a “kick-ass” country instead of a “kiss-ass” country. (Pardon the language please?) If so my two cents might help you make up your mind about who to vote for or you will simply take it along with the other politics.
No one man got us in the fix we are in today and no one man can get us out. Period! We, the Christians can take the blame for that. There was a time when the husband was head of the home and he went out made the living for the family and was proud to do so. The wife was happy to stay home and take care of the home and family. She taught her children Christian principles and manners. She did not expect the school to do. And she taught her children to respect authority. When I say husband and wife I mean one man and one woman who are married and not just living together first to see how it works and certainly not two men or two women. During that time the children were born after the wedding.
Now a days Christians are not standing up for our values and the Christians principles that we are taught. We accept the world’s standards! In so many cases you can’t tell the Christians from the world we have come to accept and be so much like them. We want the schools and churches to teach our children right from wrong but even if they do we fail to support their teaching. We, Christians are living together out-of-wedlock, we’re having babies without marriage, and we accept homosexuality; to name a few. The list goes on and on just look around. If little Johnny sees his daddy cheat on his taxes then he figures it is all right for him to cheat on his school test. If we say “Don’t drink” but our children see a cabinet in our home filled with alcoholic beverages then they get a double message which leads to a double standard.
Back when I was growing up the family all sat around the table and had dinner together. That was a time when we could talk and discuss our day and what was happening in our lives. Today most parents are too busy to sit down and eat with their children. This starts when the kids are babies and continues. So when do they communicate with each other? Almost never! The parents are more interested in their careers. They hardly know their own children because some other woman called a nanny or housekeeper is raising them. And while she is raising their children someone else is caring for hers. Oh…I know they say it takes two salaries in today’s economy. But there is a reason for that. Today they must have a big houses, two cars, boats, and on and on. Today even the Jones are keeping up with the Jones. And I ask why? Why are we throwing the important thing out the window? Our family! And striving for what’s important to the world.
No Satan is doing what he should be doing. He is destroying our families thus our Christian principles and values. It is we Christians who are failing to do what we should be doing. We don’t need a whole village to raise our children we need to do the job ourselves and do it based on Christian values.
Thanks for listening to my thoughts today. Until next time give it some thought and keep believing, keep trusting God and keep praying. The world needs more praying parents. God bless.
