A kiss tells all. If you don’t believe me try this experiment: give your spouse a kiss. Are you reluctant or do you desire to kiss your spouse? Answering that question as well as confronting opposing messages from society about what “comes first” in marriage life are strong indicators to how well or poor your marriage is going. Find out what makes “heirs together” so vital in your marriage!
Parents, despite your imperfect efforts, when raising children “in the way of the Lord”, it is possible that one (or more) may reject the Lord. What are you to do? How do you respond to your child who wants to leave? Just as importantly, how do you respond if they “return”? Let’s find out.
All the books on ‘Christian Parenting’, parenting styles or ‘Godly Discipline’ may point to the Bible and provide biblical help in the raising of our children but it CANNOT do one thing: make perfect children. Today, we shatter the myth that has been applied to Proverbs 22:6.

Last week we looked at the history of courtship in our country and how it has lead to the stereotypical failure of today’s “dating”. So, how should our young use their time before getting married? Well, for starters, we can train our children to “prepare” for a possible marriage by having our daughters give themselves over to headship of Jesus Christ and groom our sons to behave like Christ. With this mindset put to practice, we’ll have godly princesses who will be able to prepare themselves for their (godly) prince charming.
Dating – as far as world history is concerned – is a relatively new phenomenon and has typically associated with it the dangers of temptations and double standards that do not typically lend itself to healthy relationships in preparation for biblical marriage. This lesson gives insight to the modern American history of courting that evolved into the modern dating scene.
Our modern western culture seems to have come to believe that children have minimal (if any) accountability and responsibility. Further, we have turned the teenage years into a period of extended childhood. Is that what the Bible reveals for the teenager years?
