Raising Godly Children – Abigail’s Corner
“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward” (Psalm 127:3). “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” Proverb 22:6). Children indeed do live what they have learned; so it is very important that we model Christ before them. As believers in Jesus we must follow God’s instruction how to raise our child/children and teach them lessons from your live-giving words that will last them a lifetime.
Giving Our Children Lessons That Will Last a Lifetime What if families were to begin living like Jesus Christ each and every day, in every encounterevery word, action and thought? What if we were to take seriously Proverbs 20:11, which tells us, Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right? This verse reveals that even in children God is telling is that their action reveals who ther are. Christian families are struggling in a culture hostile to Christian values, and increasingly find themselves searching for answers and strategies to be more effective. Our Children must see godly example in how we treat each other in our homes. If our children has proper biblical examples where they see the parents married or single living godly lives; then they will aspire to do the same. The most common and visible way which tell others about us is by our conduct which reveals our character and the clothes we wear.
Character & Clothing There is much more to our clothing choices than we might imagine. For many people, what they wear is merely a matter of habit. Our clothes say a great deal about who we are and can signal a great deal of socially important things to others, even if the impression is actually unfounded. Research suggests that these impressions about us can start in childhood. One study found that teachers made assumptions about children’s academic ability based on their clothing. The way we dress reveals our character and shows our internal motivation. From a very young age my father taught my siblings and I the importance of dressing modestly. He taught us that as followers of Jesus Christ we must reflect Christ and reflect Him especially in our attire. Consequently, from my daughter Abigail’s birth, I too along with my husband taught her the importance of modesty. Our dressing is God’s standards not worldly standards.
Therefore, a Christian must dress in a manner that manifests God to the world and in a manner that does not make a fellow brother or sister stumble in sin. A Christian must always be dressed decently; whether male or female, Jesus must be revealed in our dressing. But if a Christian accepts the world, dresses like the world, what is the difference between such a Christian and the world? If we dress like the world (we love the world dressing) the love of the Father is not in us. There are people who say that they dress how they feel comfortable – such a person is saying I know what’s best for me better that God. the question that we should ask however is: Why did God not left Adam and Eve in their fig leaves – I believe God showed by clothing them that He has a standard the way we must dress.
The world tells and pushes for women to dress provocatively so of who in turn teaches their daughter’s to dress accordingly. However, we see in Genesis at the beginning that God clothed the first man and woman who put on fig leaves in modest manner. (side note-they were the only two humans alive yet God taught that it was important to have them clothed properly). All true Christian must walks according to God’s standards not according to his/her standards or the worlds. When “we accept the world (way), doing what the world is doing, know that the love of your Father in heaven is not in you” (1 John 2:15). How we dress our bodies is very important to God who clothed the first man and woman because; our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Dressing is about how we manifest Jesus Christ to people. It is about how we take care of our brothers and sisters not to sin. On this page of “Image Consultation” are some of the modest attire that I dress our daughter Abigail in.
