During the wilderness, God instructed Israel to teach the commands He was giving to them to their children so that they do not forget the Lord who brought them from the land of Egypt, the house of slavery. He instructed them never to follow any of the gods of the peoples that surrounded them, so that it may be well with them. Those who didn’t obey were judged and were not able to make it to the promised land but those who did were able to see the land that was flowing with milk and honey. (Deut 6)

As Solomon in the book of Ecclesiastes put it ” That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.” The only thing we don’t learn from history is that we never learn from history. Society today is doing everything it can to corrupt children’s minds by bombarding them with its lies. Media has played a huge part in this. We currently live in an epoch where fundamental truths are being exchanged for ignorance- a state where we can’t definitely say what the truth is. We can’t even define who a woman is. We can’t call out sin because that’s hate speech. Such kinds of teachings have infiltrated the schools where we send our kids to.

But how did we get there in the first place? Like Israel, a society that forsakes God and stops training its kids in the way of the Lord is a society that God ends up abandoning and is given up to a debased mind. Just as it does not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God also gave it over to a depraved mind, to do and believe those things which are not proper (Rom 1:28).

The children of today are those who will make up tomorrow’s society, we therefore call upon parents, siblings, friends, and relatives, to grow and nurture their kids in the fear of the Lord, for it is the beginning of wisdom. As the Lord commanded Israel, so He commands us “To fear the Lord our God for our good always and for our survival.”(Deut 6:24)

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ‘ (Prov. 22:6)
