He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children, it will be a refuge. Proverbs 14:26
In our culture today making sure our children see our faith is very important. How do you show your children that your faith is before social, financial, and your career? Do you teach your children that their faith is important in today’s culture?
In all my years working with families, I know that a healthy sense of security, identity, and belonging are keys to emotional health. This is true, not just for our kids but for us too. Proverbs 14:26 says, “he who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children, it will be a refuge.”
But we to often find our belonging, identity and security in our social financial and career status, while many of our kids seek refuge in sex, drugs. Rock, rap, and technology. When our kids see us making our faith premanent before social, financial, and career status, they will be more likely to seek Christ as their refuge also.
