                      A principle in child training               


  Have you ever heard the saying; "I wish someone told me that years ago."  Or something similar?  Sometimes it is a matter of us not listening... or not filtering.  Sometimes it is forgetting... or just not putting it into practice...

  So today we are going to look at a familiar Scripture.  

  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.  2 Timothy 16-17

    What I would like us to do is apply this to working with our children.  But I would like to address us as adults first.  We must believe that all scripture is from God!  The word of God... and to that it is profitable!  

    -For TEACHING  We need to be teaching God's word to our children.  The 10 commandments... Godly principles... Bible stories of Faith, trust...

   -For REPROOF  That is blame for doing something wrong.    

     2 Points                                                                                                                                                                                               1 .  remember that it is God's law that is broken                   (which is more important that our personal home rules)   2. Disappointment verses anger...  

 -FOR CORRECTION  Communication not just punishment...

    Remember love mercy forgiveness patience kindness

  -COMPLETE    no matter what you believe you need the Word of God;  which leads you to Jesus Christ.  That is how you become complete and equiped for every good work.

  As parents we need to be teaching principles of God's word... living these principles...  ya reproof but correcting in a loving way. Showing good works.  Guiding to do works works.  Praising good works...
