Pride-filled crime in our streets, with no repercussion. What does that teach our kids?
Trace Embry shares the conundrum next.
The vile crimes committed in our streets these days is telling our kids that maybe crime does pay. Psalm 12:8 says, “The wicked freely strut about, and what is vile is honored among men.” It’s hard to explain to our kids that vile behavior leads to consequences when there seem to be no consequences for it. Especially from our woke government.
This doesn’t dismiss our responsibility as Christian parents to exercise appropriate discipline in our homes when evil takes place. Our culture can no longer be our guide for love and discipline. Today, love is indistinguishable from lust, and discipline is considered abuse. The Bible must be our dictionary and standard.
