Train Up a Child Bible Verse Secrets
Christian Mom Training Up a Child Manual
Hello again my dear friend. Welcome back for more interesting Truth
about the life of a virtuous woman. What a great verse to discuss
concerning the respect a family has for a virtuous wife and mother!
Let's start by looking at this verse from a minor's point of view. I
used to debate with my parents when I was a teenager (way back when I
knew everything), about how respect was something that must be
earned, it doesn't just come with the kid. Well, since then, I've
realized that the enemy was using my pride and selfishness to contend
with what was really the Truth, and had previously learned as a
little child ... And that is, that God's commandment says that in
fact, respect should come with the kid:
Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the
land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
now, let me say, right up front in this raising a child path to peace
that there are circumstances where some parents aren't very
respectable, and if you're in such circumstances, please pray and
seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit about what to do. Certainly our
loving Father doesn't want children to be abused by parents that are
not honorable. But if you're just a rebel and you have no
justification for disrespecting the parents that God has put in
charge of your soul, my friend, you're not only hurting your parents,
but you're disobeying God's command, and you're hurting yourself.
How to Train Up a Child Bible Verse
Christian Mom Training Up a Child Instructions
From a parental point of view, maintaining a "blessed status" among
your children may seem like an impossible goal, but if you give up
before you even try, then you'll never achieve your objective. If
you're beginning your quest to be virtuous after your children have
begun school, they may not call you blessed until they themselves
become adults and experience disrespect from people younger than them
... That's how powerful the world takes hold of them, and peer
pressure even at grammar school ages will persuade them that to
disrespect elders is a cool thing to do.
Raising a Child Righteously Trivia Time ... So, how does a Christian
Mom attempt to achieve this level of respect from their children?
Well, obviously the best thing you can do, is be virtuous.
Next, the most effective way is to teach them as early as possible
all that you know about righteousness. It's sometimes very
difficult to make your precious little loved ones that what God
thinks about you is exponentially more important than what your
friends think. Most of the things that mold our children are things
that they learn and/or will do to impress their peers.
You must be earnest about it. Diligence is your friend. Persist.
Another key to success is to keep them out of the world as much as
possible. I can't stress to you enough how important this is, and
believe me, you will have opposition from every angle when you choose
to do this ... Why? Because it's not worldly to stay out of the
world. It's Godly.
1 John 2:15-17
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the
Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but
he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
... know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?
whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
It's never too early to insure that good Christian values are
instilled in your children. Yes, be persistent, but be patient as
well. We are creatures of God, and if you think about it, you can
raise many wild animals from the time they are born, and they will be
tame until and unless their natural instincts to be wild overcomes
them. But to take a wild animal out of it's habitat, and try
and tame it, is a much more difficult undertaking. What I'm saying
is, that once a child learns the ways of the world, whether it be
through school, or television, or books, or no matter what, it is
more difficult to teach them a new habit. The Christian Mom is
the perfect candidate for this challenge.
God knows that children can be unruly, and that's why tough love
is part of His plan of discipline. The Bible confirms this many

Christian Mom Training Up a Child Steps
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them
up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him
chasteneth him betimes [early].
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will
not depart from it.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of
correction shall drive it far from him.
The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth
his mother to shame.
Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give
delight unto thy soul.
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh
unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of
the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth
every son whom He receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with
sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are
partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Train Up a Child Bible Verse Concern
Christian Mom Training Up a Child Warning
Christian Mom Raising a Child Warning ... Abusive chastening is of
course not what the Lord is speaking of in the Bible, but as you can
see, and every parent knows, children need discipline. And every
child is different. One may learn from a simple time out. Another may
need other restrictions. Some with gentleness, some with severity.
13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou
beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his
soul from hell.
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the
mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the
fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Teach children righteousness early early early. If you teach them The
Way of the Lord early, hopefully they will recognize that the way of
the world is deceit and the discipline required will be minimal.
Raising a Child Point of Interest ... For those of you who have
infant children, I know that what you're about to read may be hard to
believe, because your little Angel is so precious and pure right now,
but my hopes are to warn you of what may lie ahead, and there are
precious few children that are able to resist it when they are
exposed to the tantalizing things that await them out in the world.
Teach them early, I can't say it enough. Keep them safe as long as
you possibly can. Read and re-read the verses in the scripture boxes
above, and believe them ... They are the Truth.
There are many times in a parent's life when their children call them
anything but blessed. This is because we have enemies that teach them
early on that righteousness is not cool, and being accepted by their
peers and the world, instead of being acceptable to God becomes the
most important thing in their life. Let me show you an example of how
Little Junior was an adorable child. His parents loved him dearly and
were very cautious and protective, as parents of infants and toddlers
normally are. His mom made sure his formula was always perfect and
when he started eating solid foods, she made sure he ate just the
right amounts of fruits and vegetables and cereal.
Junior's dad was equally careful about making sure the latches on the
cabinets were always locked and that any outlet that wasn't being
used, always had a little plastic plug in it, etc.
Junior took a nap every day, and went to sleep at the same time every
night. He had Bible stories read to him each night before he was put
down to sleep, he was very well protected, he was always scrupulously
clean and basically he was a very much loved little tot.
The scene fades out with Mommy and Daddy putting little Junior to bed
with a lullaby playing in the background, while he gazes up at his
little mobile hanging from the ceiling with little Angels turning in
circles above his bed.
The music ... Now a more sinister, "Ring around the Rosie," is heard
in the background as the new scene fades in.
Junior is sitting at the lunch table at his pre-school, unpacking his
lunch, when Buster, the most popular kid in the morning session,
starts teasing him about the contents of his little plastic lunchbox.
"Ewwwww, you like carrots? Grosssssss!"
Junior thinks Buster is cool because he makes all the kids laugh all
the time, so when Buster does something, Junior takes note and in his
little mushy brain, he thinks to himself, "I like him, he's cool,
I'll do that too!" Junior slowly pushes the carrots back into his
lunchbox, and a lie is planted in his newly determined, easily
influenced little mind ... "I don't like carrots, they're grosssss,
I'll never eat them again."
Junior's mom can't understand why yesterday Junior loved carrots, and
now today, he won't touch them. They'd been one of his favorite foods
ever since the first time he ate them out of a jar. Now, he makes
horrible faces every time they're on his plate and Junior's mom could
cut them in sticks, cut them in circles, shred them in coleslaw,
sliver them in salad, make fancy dips for them, and even carve little
race cars out of them and Junior wouldn't eat them for love or money.
I don't need to elaborate for you to get the idea of what happens
next so I'll just give you a Raising A Child synopsis.
Scene 3 would be in kindergarten and the issue will be clothes. Scene
4 would be a couple of years later and the issue would be about
disrespecting your elders. Scene 5, smoking. Scene 6, drugs. Scene 7,
stealing. Scene 8, sex. Scene 9, crime.
And horrifyingly enough, there are even more scenes between each of
these and even after them. And frighteningly enough, they don't
always happen in this order. Peer pressure is an ugly and powerful
thing. Oh, and by the way, this all usually happens before they get
out of middle school.
So, what do you think? Why do we take such careful measures to insure
the safety and protection of our children's physical well being
against the world when they're infants, but when society dictates, or
whenever we choose it's the right time, we don't bat an eye at
turning their delicate little souls loose for the world to influence
however it pleases?
Raising a Child Field Trip ... Let's take a look at the other mammals
of the world for a moment, shall we? I'm no biologist, but I do know
that most mammals, other than humans, do not leave their young out of
their sight until they're self sufficient and old enough to survive
on their own. You won't see them leave their babies for hours at a
time with a friend or at a care facility so they can go to the mall
or just escape for a while. No ma'am, they won't let anything get
within a safe distance of them. But the human race, they can't wait
to dump theirs off in the world ... And why? So they can go back out
into the world themselves. Shameful!
Train Up a Child Bible Verse Rules

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Now, what do you think happens when our children encounter other
children who doubt the existence of God? Well, heck, we don't need
other children to suggest that, our public school systems have taken
care of that for us already. So, how do you keep this from happening?
You have to be persistent. Monitor what television viewing is allowed
in your home. Each and every time you recognize something that is a
potential threat to your family's integrity, address it. Say out loud
to your children that it is wrong. Know who your children's friends
are. Make your home a more desirable place to be than out in the
world, where immorality awaits at every corner.
If at all possible, home school your children. Unless you've observed
a full day at a public school, you wouldn't believe how much time is
wasted and how little a child learns in an average day in the public
school system. Why do you think they learn so many other things that
they shouldn't be learning in school? Because there's the time and
opportunity to. Check into the requirements in your state. There is
so much material available on the internet that you can home school a
child of any level, absolutely free if you're determined.
If you've ever met a child that is home schooled, usually by a
Christian Mom, you'll find that they are far more intelligent than
children that attend public school. They are getting one on one
instruction from you, and you will make sure that they comprehend
what they're studying, unlike teachers who have the responsibility of
20 or more students per class.
Be a good example to your children. Point out what happens to people
who are immoral. Be alert. Make it your business to know what's going
on in your children's lives. I promise, your children aren't gonna
come up to you and say, "Uh, hey Mom, I'm thinking about taking up
cigarette smoking, can you give me a few tips?" Make it your business
to prevent disaster before it happens.
Of course, I'm just giving you examples of the little baby problems
that face people in the world today. There's a saying that goes
something like this, Little kids, little problems, big kids, big
problems. Unfortunately, now we have, little kids, big problems.
Fight. Stand. Persist. Pray.
Train Up a Child Bible Verse Reason
Training Up a Child Pitfalls
It's frightening how much adults are like children in this way. Even
the Christian Mom. If only we, as adults, would listen to our Father,
how much pain we could avoid in our lives. What was it that led us
away? Was it that the world spoke up louder than our Father did when
choices were presented to us or did we just pay closer attention to
the world? Or perhaps we just chose to ignore Him completely. Chances
are, the consequences of our choices had a pretty loud volume too. By
good example, and awareness, you can help your children to recognize
when the world is trying to lure them into the wrong choices, and
surely, they will call you blessed. If not now ... Someday.
Now, the entire Verse 28:
Your efforts in maintaining a virtuous lifestyle, in keeping your
family virtuous and being a good example to others, is something that
any virtuous husband would appreciate.
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife
is from the LORD.

Be sure to give the praise to God, because without Him, where would
you be? All the credit for good things belongs to the Lord.
For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
Raising a Child Note: You may have noticed that I didn't put much
emphasis on the part about being praised, and that's because I truly
believe that our purpose in life is to represent and praise and
glorify God, not seek praise for ourselves. Everyone likes to hear
"good job" or "well done" because then we know our efforts aren't
wasted, but never let it get out of hand. Fame isn't a virtue. To be
godly doesn't mean that you want people to treat you like God ... It
simply means that you sincerely try to represent your Lord in all
that you do. A righteous Christian Mom would.
