The Shocking (Yet Accurate) People Who Mislead Our Kids

Educators have the ability to mislead our kids. It may be completely unintentional, but it does happen. They naturally will share things that are a matter of opinion, and never even realize they’re leading them astray.

Some of the laws we have, simply aren’t appropriate either and they’re way overdue for some changes. Like the fact that, it’s “our body” and we can do anything we want with it, while still legally having the choice to forego any consequences. And finally, even people within the church will mislead sometimes, without any intentions to no doubt. They share things from the understanding they have of it.

Leaders Mislead

First of all, what’s important for us to realize is that the most influential person we base our worth on needs to be Jesus. It’s part of our calling, to mimic Him while walking this life.

Anybody else will simply have flaws, when He never changes. It’s completely natural to grow, becoming different throughout the years. I know I have! It also happens to every other person that exists. Which means, what we pass on through our words today, we may not even agree with in another ten years! Not so, with Jesus. Unchanging, unwavering, without imperfections..only Him.

Beloved Children

I’m a mama, and if one of my children were misbehaving or out of control, I’d never allow them to continue going down such a self-destructive path. Eventually, they’ll become adults on that path, adding a whole other level of danger.

As a parent, we need to apply our best judgement in their disciplinary actions. It needs to be done in such a way that’ll help them with learning to decipher right from wrong. Just grounding our children and taking away their belongings, while that’s fine some of the times, it only resolves the issue temporarily.

“You’re children of God, and He speaks words of comfort to you. You’ve forgotten these words…‘My child, don’t think the Lord’s discipline is worth nothing, and don’t stop trying when He corrects you.’”
Hebrews 12:5

After initially handling the problem, I always make sure my children know I still love them. It’s actually because I love them, they must incur a consequence. They’ll always be my babies, though. And nothing could ever change how I feel.

I can’t help but see the similarities between me behaving as a responsible mom, and God always being the perfect Father. He helps me in my life, by forcing me to deal with consequences of my actions. It’s not something that should be just – POOF! – taken away. This would teach nothing!

A Loving Father To His Children

Because even though God “helps” me by allowing my consequences, I’m always going to be His daughter, and He’ll never change the way He feels about me. It’s an encouragement to my faith, as well. Though some stuff can be uncomfortable to face up to, I know He has the power to say “when” it’s enough, and He will.
