Bring Them Up
“And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4)
How do we bring our children up? We bring them up in television, movies and funny books. We bring them up in basketball, baseball, football and track. We bring them up in the Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and the Brownies. We bring them up in math, English, science, physics and music. We bring them up in the ease and comfort of modern living with all supplied.
But what about the Lord? I fear some of us are leaving Him out somewhere along the way, and we shall reap as we have sown.
