took this directly from a friend & brother, one "Martin Marprelate" from the UK who posts on this and other boards & has his own ministry. Martin / Steve has touched on something that I have been contemplating for some, the raising up of our children. And again, he has hit the mark. Proverbs 22:6. ‘Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.’ Matthew 19:14. ‘Let the little children come to Me…..’ ‘Said the swallow to the sparrow, “I should really like to know Why those foolish human beings Rush about and worry so.” Said the sparrow to the swallow, “Well I think that it must be That they have no Heavenly Father Such as cares for you and me.”’ This Thursday, the police raided a house that has been in foreclosure for a while now...that house was being used by our local youth to shoot heroin.....you get my point. But how much of this Proverbs 22:6 teaching been lost on these kids parents....indeed on my own son who lives with his girlfriend. Did we not raise him up properly? We went to church, put him through SS, but we were poor examples, have lived together without being married in our own youths....I solice (sic) myself that he isn't a homosexual but he is also repeating my same mistakes. What does a parent do at this stage?
