“My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.” Proverbs 1:10
If someone dumped a pile of smelly, dirty trash in your family room, you’d probably be incensed! Yet how many families allow the garbage of our culture into their homes every single day?
Did you know the average home today has three TVs, three radios, two CD players, one computer, two DVD players, and one video game system? That’s a lot of the impurity and depravity of this world getting into our homes.
And that’s how a lot of that depravity gets into the heads of our children!
The best parental control isn’t the movie rating system or the television and video game rating system. The best parental control system is you, mom and dad!
Why? Because you’re called to protect your children’s purity.
The way you do this is by providing reasonable rules and boundaries regarding media consumption, computer use, dress”¦and your kids’ friends.
First Peter 5:8 says, “Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” This includes your kids and mine!
So if you are going to fight the good fight of faith, you must protect the purity of your children”¦even if this means displeasing your kids at times. So take time today to look carefully at what you are allowing into your home and take whatever measures you need to so your kids will be protected from the garbage of our culture.
WISE FAMILIES ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE TO LIVE MORALLY PURE LIVES.
