Keeping The Home

"Keeping the Home" is more than staying home;  it is having a heart that is fixed on the home...She will guard the home against outside influences, and she will always be on watch to protect the children from their own inventions of evil.  She will not be idle and neither will her children. 
Debi Pearl

This subject is an important one to me as you can tell if you have been reading my blog for any time at all.  As society gets darker, children need more protection.  Protection from predators, from evil influences, and from bad habits.

God must think it is important too, since most of the directives He gives to women in the Bible revolve around the home.  Healthy families build healthy societies.

Children left alone get in trouble.  They need godly influences in their lives consistently pointing out to them the right way to live..."training them in the way they should go."  Be careful with the friends you allow them to hang out with, what they watch on television, and what they are doing alone in their bedrooms.  Protect them.  They will thank you someday for it.

The Bible commands us to  ~

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication sins against his own body
I Corinthians 6:18

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart
II Timothy 2:22

So teach your children to flee evil.  Don't let them mess around with it at all or they may be wrestling with it the rest of their life.  Teach them to love holiness and purity and to want to walk in love.  Life will be so much easier for them if you train them while they are young to be good.

This world needs salt and light very badly.
