“Wisdom to Live By!”
God knew what He was doing when He created Adam and Eve. He was creating the core unit for His people, for society, and ultimately for the Church, Christ’s Body. In creating Adam and Eve, a man and a woman, God created the “family unit” that would produce children and be responsible for their training to become servants of God in this world. The breakdown of every society begins with the breakdown of the family, resulting in a lack of teaching and discipline. God has given to parents and to His people the task of teaching the next generation to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him, and where fathers and mothers and others who are part of God’s people fail in that task, and where sin destroys the testimony and witness of those responsible to teach and to discipline, there arises a generation who do not know God, love God or serve God. It is that simple! The cure is obvious to those with the Spirit and we need to engage in fulfilling our calling, as individuals and families and as the Church, to teach our children, by word and by example, what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ, praying that the Spirit will regenerate them through the power of the Gospel. If we want our children to follow in our path, we must lead them to Christ, in whom is found true wisdom. He gives His disciples all we need for the task and is at work in us and through us to accomplish all that He desires for our good and His glory. May we be found so doing!!
