To be like Jesus 337

Today

Wive, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.” Colossians 3 v18 AKJV

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one element.” Genesis 3 v24 AKJV’

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.” Ephesians 6 v1-3 AKJV

Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God hath given thee.” Exodus 20 v12 AKJV

For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.5. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.6. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.7. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.8. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.9. And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice, 10. And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the Lord commanded.11. Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.12. Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.13. Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David My servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen.’ — 1 KINGS xi.4-from the below link 13https://biblehub.com/library/maclaren/expositions_of_holy_scripture_f/the_fall_of_solomon.htm

Every parent who invest in raising their children with love and admonition toward the Lord knows that one day that will come to serve their children well. It seems that commonplace even in some religious settings commonplace has become to serve ourselves well, live as we need to for the satisfaction of our own “spouse” and disregard the teachings of growing up. Tis one day we will all know that God’s ways cannot be twisted to turn our ways into his ways.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22 v6 AKJV

Lord, I thank you this day for my children. I thank you for the insight of life you gave them through your word and spirit being shared with them daily. I trust that always in the end, that understanding will manifest itself in a great way, and in glory and honor to you. Amen
