Theives and children

23 Jul

Hello again!  

Here is what God showed me in his word today:  

Pro 20:10 

  

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD. 

 

  

Pro 20:11  

Even a child makes himself known by his acts, by whether his conduct is pure and upright.   

Hm, even children are known by what they do, how much more than should adults handle themselves with care, and make sure that they set a good example for their children? Some people you will find have no rules, and pride themselves on it, however, their children don’t know how to live, why not put a sledge hammer though the wall? And then their parent’s punish them, when it was in fact their fault for having no rules, albeit the child should have known not to do that, but with no rules, who can tell what to do and what not to do?  

Other’s go to the other side, and have to many rules and to high expectations for their children, and punish them for the smallest things.  

So, that is how an adult may influence their children to disobey, or for the parents to be in fact, cruel to their children. But that is only half of the two verses.  

I thought it would be best in this case for you to learn the last before the first, because now that you know how it would affect you’re children wife/husband then you will have a better understanding of just how wrong stealing is:  

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD.    

Wow, just think about it, if we steal, it is like a abomination to God! Just imagine how horrible it would be, to find you’re self in front of Jesus, and to not only have led you’re children into sin, but to also have been a abomination to God almighty! I sure don’t want that to be me, but, if you have stolen, then there are really just about three things you must do to be forgiven:  

1. Return what ever you have stolen, or if you have sold it traded it etc, then give what ever you got for it to the person you stole the original item, or even sell what you got or use the money you have to buy a new one, then after you have returned it, ask the person to forgive you.  

2. Ask God to forgive you, and whole heartedly , and completely ask him to forgive you and to keep you from doing it again.  

3. Ask a fellow brother or sister in Christ to help you, and to hold you accountable, and also ask them to pray for you. A personally recommend this site for you, http://www.settingcaptivesfree.com/other-courses/ specifically the bottom of the page.  

You are loved!
