Child Training

We are having a real crack down around here. It's not easy and definitely not fun, but in addition to getting our house organized we're trying to get some attitudes and behaviors organized! I have recently read some very convicting books and even some blogs, dealing with keeping our children's hearts. I am really convicted about the way our family is headed. The behaviors and attitudes have gotten out of control around here and I am spending most of my days correcting them. We have greatly cut down on all movies, we are cutting down on all out of the house influences and are purging our house of anything that could possible cause disrespectful or mean attitudes. I really feel it's important to bring soldiers of the faith into the world, but in addition to that they need to be testimonies now. What kind of testimony is it if you go to the store, doctors office, church and you have a bunch of kids, but they're ill behaved or mean? And like the Bible says Pro. 20:11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right. I really do try to get them to understand that. People are watching us. As Christians, but more as a large family. I guess we can't help being noticed! A crowd of children and the females are all wearing skirts! We're sure to draw attention, and so we need to be acting like Christians more than dressing/looking like them. Actions speak louder than words! And so A SONG!

Do you know, O Christian,
you’re a sermon in shoes?
Do you know, O Christian,
you’re a sermon in shoes?
Jesus calls upon you to
spread the Gospel News;
So walk it, and talk it,
Live it, and give it,
Teach it, and preach it
Know it, and show it,
A Sermon in Shoes.

So, Christian, do you realize you're a sermon in shoes? Do your kids realize they are? Very convicting thought!
