A Heavy Heart
There is a war, my Christian sisters, an all out battle on the sacredness of our marriages and for the minds of our children. If marriage in our society is no longer what God meant it to be, then what shall we teach our children? If we do not teach them the TRUTH of GOD's WORD, then society will teach them lies. We must remain steadfast and vigilant in "fighting the good fight" and defending the faith of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We must uphold Biblical standards in our homes, and in our communities, it is essential.
My heart is heavy over a situation I know of personally, where 3 little children are being raised by 2 women, who both proclaim to be mothers, together. Oh, sweet Jesus, my heart is heavy! I don't need to list the countless wrongs that will be learned, that will be taught, on purpose. I don't have to list the mounds of confusion these children will face as they struggle to go against the natural, God-given instincts they were born with. My heart cries out to the living God on behalf of the children!
Children are our future, the next generation who will lead, and teach, and train and bring up another generation. Oh, how great and heavy our responsibility is! If the evil one is free to attack our marriages, then our children are most certainly next on the list. We already see the attacks now, bold, open, and in plain sight. If we allow the attacks on our family, what will we have left? If we just turn our heads and become indifferent, what are we really saying? If we shun those difficult conversations with our children, denying them the opportunity to discuss the truth, what will they learn? Confusion. Sin. Sadness. Unnatural behaviors.
We must protect our children, shield them, cover them in prayer. We must teach them the truth, even when it's hard and uncomfortable. "Train up a child in the way he should go . . ." (Proverbs 22: 6) includes training on topics that maybe "touchy," "controversial," "politcally incorrect" and the like. But our responsibility remains, all the same, to teach them right from wrong. My heart is heavy with the weight of responsibility.
So I will not be apologetic for this post, in encouraging other wives and mothers to protect their marraiges and families as defined by God. I will not be ashamed to be identified as woman who holds a bibilcal view of my marriage and my family. I will not be ashamed to teach my children the same.
