Proverbs 6:20 “My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”
God created something amazing. His creation can multiply, teach, guide, and prepare people for their future. This fantastic creation is the family.
The older I get, the more I realize that, as a parent, I have no idea what I have gotten myself into! I am an only child and only grandchild. Now I have four kids. The cool part, though, is that for everything I don’t know, my kids know even less.
I watch my children struggle with the same things with which I struggled. The best part is that, as a parent, I can tell them with confidence that no matter what they are going through, they are going to be okay. Not that what they are going through is going to be easy, but that they will survive. My proof is that I am still here.
My wife and I are blessed to have such amazing kids and an opportunity from God to train them up in the way they should go, just like my parents did. I followed their commands (most of the time). I survived adolescence and even found an amazing woman to marry me. My life is pretty good.
God built the family to create people who are guided correctly. There is wisdom in the family.
