Kids want to be loved and have fun. So simple right? It should be simple because kids don’t come into the world with the mentality to plan to do evil. These behaviors are taught by people they know or have some form of interaction with daily or periodically. Maybe over hearing conversations from unknown individuals in passing. You may think you have it under control by limiting the number of hours in front of the television and on social media or playing with friends and tech toys, but unfortunately that is not enough. You see, on the other side of that door is a life filled with bad influences and temptations and the things that are not of God. But it’s not too late to train up your kids in the way they should go and create a change in the atmosphere one child at a time.
Let’s get started!!
Proverbs 3:5 KJV Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
1Cor 3:19 KJV For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
We need God’s wisdom and knowledge to help with our children and with all things.
Proverbs 2:6 KJV For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of the mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 8:11 KJV For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared.
2Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The word of God has to be in you, a part of who you are… parents obeying and applying the word of God. You are the first example of Christ for your kids.
(Below is a list of books and scriptures, but seek the word of God with your kids and find the ones suitable for them to understand.)

7 THINGS TO HELP KIDS BE LIKE CHRIST
We want kids that go out in the world and in every situation before they act, they ask the question –
What Would Jesus Do?
You worked hard for the raise, promotion, or that VP title. You worked hard and long hours on a project. You worked hard to get to the top. You worked hard to put together the biggest party ever – from securing the location to the caterer. And for all of this hard work, what you know for sure is everyone is going to be talking about it for weeks to come and nobody can tell you that notoriety is not coming your way. The compliments and kudos, in the form of congratulatory notes, cards, emails, phone calls, text messages and we can’t forget your social media is going to blow up!!
Well here comes the disappointment. You have about 1000 followers, you received 20 congrats…and you only know seven of those twenty people. Then you tell yourself I don’t care. Yes, you do care and then comes the question, do they know just how hard I worked? The “Recognition Plan” failed as far as you are concerned.
Did you do it for the right reasons? What was your intentions? Was your heart in the right place?
Colossians 3:23-24 KJV And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
Everything we do, we should do it as if we are doing it for the Lord. People will let you down and not on purpose, but because they can’t live up to your expectations, plus they are too busy trying to figure out why the people they thought they could depend on for kudos and congratulations didn’t live up to their expectations. Therefore, as you can see there seems to be enough let downs to go around…. let downs are so universal.
We don’t want the let downs. We want to be praised. However, it’s not about us and our egos. It is not about what we deem success or greatness to be or should be. And we should by all means work hard, but whatever we do, we should do it to the glory of God. Praising God in the beginning, middle and the end of our hard work. Through it all give God glory and praise.
Psalm 150:6 KJV Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
Psalm 117:1 KJV O Praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
All praise belongs to God.
