Permissive Parents

Ephesians 6:4: And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Proverbs 13:24: He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

Proverbs 19:18: Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.

Proverbs 22:6: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 29:17: Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

Colossians 3:21: Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

Permissive parents cause problems for their children. Our society is full of that kind of parents today. They are one big reason that our nation is getting farther from God and so many young people get in trouble and stay in it all their lives.

We get many of our ideas of what God is like from our parents, more from our fathers, but also from our mothers. If we have dictators for parents, we tend to believe that God is a dictator. If we have abusive parents, we tend to believe that God is abusive. If we have irresponsible parents, we tend to believe that God is irresponsible. If we have unfair parents, we tend to believe that God is unfair. If we have stingy parents, we tend to believe that God is stingy. If we have unreliable parents, we tend to believe that God is unreliable. If we have anything-goes parents, we tend to believe that God is an anything-goes God. If we have unforgiving parents, we tend to believe that God is unforgiving. Many parents make it difficult for their children to know God as He is.

If we have loving parents, it easier to believe that God is loving. If we have wise parents, it is easier to believe that God is wise. If our parents are trustworthy, it is easier to trust God. If our parents are good examples, it is easier for us to believe that God is good. Parents who love the Lord show their children how to love Him. Some parents make it easier for their children to know God as He is.
