Another thing that I want to tell the whole world is to shape their children’s lives. Don’t let TV and movies educate your kids about what is normal.
Believe me… what we see around us is not what is normal. Yes it’s what we see, its what we see every day… but it’s not normal.
What is normal is the truth revealed in scripture. It’s DRASTICALLY different to what we see around us every day. This is a profound truth that is only understood after the Holy Spirit reveals it to us.
So what can parents do? I recommend shaping your kids by telling them stories every day about God. Tell them the things you have seen of Gods goodness. Tell them about miracles and signs and wonders. Tell them about your prayers over the years.
Psalm 145:4-6 ‘One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendour of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.’
Movies and TV tell your children that violence is normal, that divorce is a sad but normal part of life and countless other lies.
Switch that TV off. Talk to your kids. Tell them about God. Tell them how God is a Father, a Son and the Holy Spirit.
