PARENTS at PRAISE village

 

Deuteronomy 11:1

King James Version

11 Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, 

and keep his charge, 

and his statutes, 

and his judgments, 

and his commandments, 

alway.


Parents at PRAISE village are born again.

They have committed their lives to the LORD.

They are instructed by SPIRIT each day.

Prayers are given to JESUS each day.

Everything is offered to GOD.

For His GLORY alone, and never man's.

Whether it be our lives, work, or children.

For, without GOD, we won't be here.

We won't even exist.

It's really as simple as that.

Being governed by GOD, parents can govern their children well.

GOD was clear how we are to bring up our children:

Deuteronomy 11:19-21

King James Version

19 And ye shall teach them your children, 

speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, 

and when thou walkest by the way, 

when thou liest down, 

and when thou risest up.

20 And thou shalt write them 

upon the door posts of thine house, 

and upon thy gates:

21 That your days may be multiplied, 

and the days of your children, 

in the land which the Lord sware 

unto your fathers to give them, 

as the days of heaven upon the earth.


This is not brainwashing.

This is being WASHED by the WORD.

That we may be acceptable to the LORD, our GOD, when the day comes.

That we may be guided by His SPIRIT each day.

That we may acknowledge the teachings of the LORD JESUS.

Everything JESUS taught, is to love GOD, and others.

What better foundation for kids, would there be?

That we may live a life, worthy of the SAVIOR's cross.

That His death, was not for nothing.

And that we would teach our children the same.

To revere the LORD, our GOD, forever.

Making sure we are all focused on GOD alone.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


We won't ask children to conform to the ways of the world.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world: 

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.


We won't ask them to be obsessed with wealth, or ambition.

Luke 9:25

King James Version

25 For what is a man advantaged, 

if he gain the whole world, 

and lose himself, 

or be cast away?


The ways of the world are in total opposition to the ways of SPIRIT.

Galatians 5:16-17

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other:

 so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.


You've heard about leadership "by example"?

Born again parents live by example.

It's really as simple as that.
