The heart is the wellspring of life. But what’s flowing from your child’s heart?
How is culture impacting this wellspring and what can we as parents do about it?
The Wellspring of Life
Our kids’ hearts are being tainted on a daily basis by what we’ve allowed as standard fare by way of today’s entertainment culture. And, in too many cases, we as parents have done the same. But, Proverbs 4:23 talks about the importance of protecting our hearts, saying: “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”
When we allow our hearts and minds to be tainted by the pollutants of today’s entertainment and then allow our kids to be tainted by much of the same, we circumvent God’s best. We allow room for the enemy to have his way, stifling the life God is looking to develop in us. It’s no wonder that Christians often suffer from many of the same ills as the secular world.
